lawn drainage

cormac healy asked 14 years ago

I have a small side garden that gets very little breeze and as a result water doesn’t drain from the grass. I am about to rotovate the grass beginning April and sow new seeds(are there coarse grass seeds?).Can you give me advice about subsoil, and how to get a better soakage system for the grass.

Save yourself the trouble and do not re-lay the lawn. The problem is impeded drainage, not the kind of grass.

You have to find a way to get the water to drain down from the surface and you might consider a soak-pit filled with stones, more on this at:
