I am looking for any advice on filling in a large sunken area of my garden.
Whenever there is a lot of rain the area fills with water, at the worst it was upto 2.5 ft deep.
The soil is very heavy with lots of clay. The area is dry at the moment so must be draining of somewhere.
I was hoping that I could just fill the area with top soil but I've been told it needs a land drain. only problem with the drain idea is there are no drains close by.
We have two small children so would love to get rid of the water.
Any advice gratefully received.
