We are on clay here and even though I've worked on drainage for the last 40 years our lawn is like walking on blancmange. Each time the dog goes out he comes in with 3 inches of black boots. As he's only a Jack Russell it's not his weight that makes him sink into the lawn. Border edges are full of water as well, so I guess I will have lost several plants from drowning.
Mind you, I'm complaining, but shouldn't really, as I have the greatest of sympathy for our northern gardeners who have lost their homes as well. I should be thankful.
