I'm new to this forum. My name is Kris.
About 6 months ago I bought a house. Since then I have a problem with the water standing on my yard for 2-3 days after rainfall. The problem is caused by a clay soil.
I was trying to find a cheap way to get this fix somehow and one day I was watching a gardening TV show. They have showed how to fix this kind of problem. What they did is that they have used a tool (looks like a drill bit but about 6' long) with about 4" dia. and they drill by hands a couple holes in the spot where the water stand most of the time.The holes where deep enough so they go through the clay soil over to the yellow sand.Then they pour some landscaping rocks into those holes. That way the water can go down all the way to the yellow sand.
Do you guys now where I can purchase a similar tool? The idea sounds great to me to dig those holes.
Or maybe you know other cheap way to fix the standing water?
