Soggy lawn area
Hi, my first time on the Garden Web forums, Here is my problem. I have an area about 1' x 3' that is very soggy and moist. It is on a slope near the patio . I do not have any other soggy, spongy areas anywhere else. I dug down to try to determine the source of the water. There is no plumbing nearby, and the sprinkler head nearby is not leaking . I can see water kind of oozing out of the ground in two areas, where I dug down.
We had the patio installed, and landscaping done this spring. We have heavy clay in the area. The sod guys put down topsoil on top of the clay, then the sod.
I can't figure out why we are getting water funneling to this area and creating this soggy area, the rest of the grass is fine.
I would appreciate any solutions to this problem. I wouldn't be so concerned, except that it is right near the step off from the patio. Thanks, Bob
