Clay soil and boggy lawn

Hello,

We have moved house and I am now the proud owner of some very boggy lawn, our garden is clay soil so drainage is a problem, I have used tool to poke holes etc but it is still very boggy, I am going to seed soon but is there anything else I can do to improve drainage before I cut my losses and pave the lot please?

The raised beds I think I can handle, but as Smurfing says above my grass is a mess. I am going to start a new topic abiut how best to go about sorting my grass.

 

Cheers

Cheers Bob, I will remove the weed layer thanks, I think the last owner wanted a maintainence free garden. I will remove the bark and turn the soil over as the clay soil is very compacted.

Hello, 1st post

We moved to our house late last summer so only got to move our pot plants to our new garden, I want to get started on the garden early in the spring and I am aiming for a green tropical look with lots of Bamboo and other tropical plants. Our new garden has raised beds which have never had any plants in just very clay soil a weed barrier and then bark, I planted a few plants last year and they seem to be ok, however these where only cheap plants, I want to transfer some of my bamboo and other plants to these borders, how best should I go about this please?
