I had my garden landscaped this summer and since September areas of m
lawn are constantly wet which is a real problem when cutting it.
asked the gardener did it need draining before he turned a sod and h
said "no". He did all of the work himself and therefore would hav
known full well what type of soil it was but still did not mention th
need to drain it. I've mentioned the waterlogging and he admitted tha
the soil is very heavy and therefore has poor drainage.Am I correct i
asserting that the gardener was at fault here for not draining it i
the first place? Should he be responsible for putting it right?
I don't fancy the prospect of having the lawn dug up again to drain it
I read recently that using a hollow-tine aerator to extract soil plug
and then top-dressing with a sandy mixture is useful for improvin
moisture penetration in waterlogged gardens. Has anyone used thi
method? Can anyone suggest any other way of improving the drainag
properties of the soil
