Wet soil

Olivia Malone asked 13 years ago

How do I drain the soil in my back garden it seems to hold on to the rain water, when you stand out on it you can hear the water in it. Also I cant get the grass to grow properly it is very patchie with moss and little weeds. My house and garden are only 5 yrs old when digging out for the decking I noticed it was full of stones etc. I am not very green fingered so am at a loss what to do

 It sounds like a soakaway might help. The grass is affected by the sodden condition of the soil. Probably compaction caused during building is the cause.
