Aisling Ward asked 15 years ago

We have a corner of our back gargen that is very wet as there s a 6-8 foot back sloping to it. We have drains at the bottom of the slop but not hellping. Can you advise of trees, hedging or other plant that would be suitable to plant in such a wet area. Thanks

A draiange problem cannot be solved by trees. Try to get the drainage working properly first. If this cannot be achieved plant willow and /or alder.
