Ground Can Be Waterlogged


kim morley added on September 2, 2017 | Answered

Hello I live in Blairadam outside Kinross in KY4 0HY, Scotland up in a hill, and possibly a very windy spot. The house was built in 2011 and the ground has more rocks than soil. However some parts are better than others. But there are are few areas that are waterlogged. Can you please recommend any evergreen plants that will help aerate the soil? Alternatively, is there anything else I can do? Thank you. Kind regards, Kim Morley

You may want to have your yard inspected by a garden landscaper.
Soil tests can help determine if your soil is heavy clay or other poorly draining soil. Amending soil to improve drainage may help.
