Good evening all.
Now I know that this winter has been exceptionally wet, but once again I can't get anywhere near my lawn without mud squelching up over the top of my shoes!
The garden is clay, and it would appear lots of it too! Today I've dug down 50cm's, everything removed is clay, I filled the hole with water to see if any drained, it didn't!
The previous 2 summers I've lived with it, spread compost and seeded, fed the lawn and generally the lawn was usable during the summer months.
I've spent hours researching the internet for solutions, and I'm willing to try them, but don't want to chuck good money after bad. 1 suggestions was to hire an auger borer, make a load of holes and fill them with stones, but as my test hole today would suggest, this won't make any difference!
My garden is surrounded on all sides by neighboring gardens, so I can't divert it beyond my boundry.
Can anybody suggest a tried and tested solution, or am I stuck as I am?
