Soggy garden

Roisin Ross asked 6 years ago

I have recently moved into a house built approx 14 years ago. It is in a development with houses behind and at each side. I have a soggy and uneven garden. I have two young children and would like to put my garden to better use. I am a first time gardener! I am considering digging the entire garden up, leveling and laying new grass seed. Can you give me any advice?

Most gardens are soggy these days. Wait a year and observe how the lawn behaves. If it soggy most of the time, it is likely to be a drainage problem.

DIgging up and  re-sowing will not solve a drainage problem. 

In the meantime mow the lawn regularly, weekly at the times of most growth, and see how it goes.
