 Not the best photo I've taken. These are neglected alstroemeria  ( as well as a few snowdrops). The ducks have been trampling on them and they're not as advanced because they are too shaded now. I probably ought to move them.

It looks like its badly drained, which it may be if you are on solid clay. You can hire a tool which punches plugs out of the soil and then either fill with coarse sand or compost . Failing that if you decide to start again, rotovate a load of compost into the top 6 inches to give a better base, then firm down and reseed.
