wet and dry problems on the property

My yard has some areas that are extremely wet and other areas that I have a hard time keeping watered for healthy grass. I started researching to find out what I could do to balance out the moisture on my property and found out about some of the landscaping techniques that can be used in such an instance. This blog was created to help other landowners find solutions to the wet or dry problems that they are having with their property. It is my hope that the solutions that my landscaper shared with me can help others improve the quality of their properties.
