    Digging up and starting a new lawn without finding out what has caused this problem is likely to result in the same problem recurring ... 

    How long has the lawn been in existence?  Is this the first time it's gone soggy and raised in areas?  If so, what has changed, what is different in the area?

    Hi, agreed, however the both lawns have always suffered with a degree of being soggy/spungy. since we brought the house over 30years ago, but never as bad as it is now, i don't know of any method of drying it out.  Hense my thought of starting a fresh, putting in drainage and gravel base.

    What sort of regular maintenance does the lawn get? 

    Is it full of moss and thatch?
