I have an area that is 28' by 18' that I'm turning into a veggie Garden. This is in south Jersey which means that I have a large amount of sandy soil with some clay mixed in. My promblem is that the front end of the garden floods with water during a heavy rain.
I dug a trench about 24" deep at a corner of the front end to see if the water would drain. But that just fills up with water and takes about 48 hrs. to drain out.
So it seems I have a drainage problem, which needs to be solved before I can continue with the Garden design.The area that floods is the front 18' of the Garden,which also floods 4' back into the garden. So far I've tried raised beds but I really don't like it.This is an Organic Garden so whatever I do should not disturb the elments of the soil. I need help!
