Talkback: Dealing with a waterlogged garden

Posted: 10/12/2012 at 15:03

I have the problem of a water logged lawn as I am on a hill and the lawn is on the flat bit .there is also a under ground spring that runs through the garden so all in all its like a swamp .We planted a stick off a willow tree one year and it grew and it grew ,it kept the lawn dry but it got bigger and bigger no matter how we cut it back and for smallish garden it was a disaster,it kept the lawn dry but it had to come down.I still have the trunk as a seat.

good idea ,might try that.I was wondering if they were coming from under the boards in the cupboards( the floor is tiled) as the outer wall gets alot of damp and its 12ft under the boards which might be where there coming from,I don't know,its a battle.
