Hi Pash, we had a similar problem when we first moved in to our property We didn't have a garden then as the builders had just finished and left us with a mud bath ! On inspection we had pockets of heavy clay and did have to put to put a few land drains in after removing as much of the clay as we could. To help matters along we ended up making gravel sumps . A friend of ours got hold of some shomolers ( sorry no idea how to spell that ! ) dug these big square holds and filled them with gravel then replaced the turf . that did the trick. I don't know about the milk crates but I'm sure someone else will help.
