hi there regarding clay soil. I need help and advice if you can help. My plants are drowning when it’s heavy rain but when it stops the flood disappears. I have dug the soil around and put clay breaker but seems not to work? Do you think I should go really deep dig all the clay out and then add new top soil?
Either that or dig out a pond.

Evergreen shrubs slows down the trickle of water into the ground. This can slowly condition the soil over the years as leaves and odd branches break off and rot into the soil. It's very normal to see flat grass areas flooded in pools of water in the winter months, but this can be rectified if you start dense planting.
