I would just like to put another viewpoint.

 F1 employs a lot of people, many of them in this country. designers , mechanics, pattern makers, aerodynamicists, wind tunnel experts. My OH has  earned quite a lot of money from the whims of certain F1 teams. It enables me to spend more time in the garden instead of slaving away on a hot till. There are winners and losers. If you don't like it, switch it off and go to Youtube and watch  Rick van man or the sainted Geoff Hamilton. I don't watch it. I'm going to plant my broad beans instead.

and you can use old bras for hanging melons in to keep them off the floor. ...of course it helps if you have a big bust.   and my sisters never forgiven me for it.

 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.
