Standing Water in the Garden

Many areas of the garden tend to hold water after heavy rainfall and can be a common problem for Sunshine Coast residents and difficult to solve.

People often ask what kind of plant, tree or shrub can be planted to help dry up wet areas. This unfortunately is not an appropriate solution as many plants are not going to thrive or grow in an area that is wet or has soggy soil.

By filling the area with topsoil, you may also find that this will simply divert the water to another area and cause further issues.

A proper drainage system is highly recommended to tackle water standing issues. To find out more information on how you can install garden drainage visit your local hardware store or contact Sunshine Coast Mowing & Maintenance.
