|If your ground is wet then build a deck above ground|
with bog plants like papyrus, ferns & colocasia's.
|A rain chain & natural stone help disperse water rather|
than have a river run through it
|Use native bog type plants in areas that remain moist and shady.|
|Plant a "rain garden"...I saw this picture on Houzz and though I think this is a very creative|
idea. Though I would have attached a long perforated pipe to the downspout &
buried the pipe in the ground as a French drain to move the water further from the
house. This looks like it would create a mess by pushing that beautifully done job
right outta there. Never underestimate the force of water, lol.
|Eco-pavers for your driveway or pathway|
|Add a dry creek bed sloping water away from the|
house...how beautiful is this just on it's own!?!
Great job Lisa Wilcox Deyo!
|Water features, rain chains and rain barrels are all excellent|
solutions to water issues as well.
All you need it a little creativity, some labor on your part and viola...soggy soil solved! Where ever you may be in this arctic blast, sending you warm tropical wishes from this So'Flo gardening girl!
Happy Gardening Y'all!
