How to stop your flower beds getting waterlogged in periods of heavy rain


Building raised flower beds can also help. It means you can fill these beds with good quality, free-draining topsoil which will help help your plants out of the soggy earth below.

Use bark chippings – they are great for absorbing excess moisture. If you often suffer from waterlogged beds be sure to sprinkle these on top of the soil.

If you routinely suffer from a waterlogged lawn, you might want to bite the bullet and install artificial grass.

But make sure that you put a permeable sub-base layer underneath the turf to make sure the water drains away.
