Beautiful green lawn

Why is My Lawn Soggy?

Excess water can be devastating to your lawn’s health, not to mention unsightly. Fortunately, a soggy lawn isn’t something you just have to live with. With the right maintenance and a little help from us, you can get back to a beautiful, lush lawn.

The dangers of an over-watered lawn:

  • Not being able to walk on or enjoy your lawn.
  • If you do regularly walk on a wet lawn, it can lead to soil compaction.
  • Sitting water can damage your home’s foundation.
  • Mosquitoes are drawn to sitting water.

Why Your Lawn May Be Soggy

You’re over-watering it.

A lot of people think that the way to a beautiful green lawn is to water it all day long, but that’s not always the case. Over-watering your lawn can lead to weed growth, root rot, and soggy patches.

Poor draining.

If you’re watering your lawn regularly but still finding it very damp all the time, it may be because you’re lacking the right draining. And unfortunately, this isn’t something you can fix by altering your watering schedule. Instead, you may need to have your drainage checked or new drainage installed.

Underground plumbing problems.

If your soggy lawn seemed to have appeared overnight, it may be because of a plumbing problem you can’t see. A burst pipe, leaking sump pump, or damaged sewer line could all be the cause of your problems.
