Re: wet soil



Hi there,
I agree with Don to not layer substrates, this causes a perched water table. 
Raise the depth of the beds, making certain that they aren't on the low end 
of the land, and mix in plenty of well composted organic matter, esp. (if 
you can get it) composted tree bark. The larger the particle size, the 
better the drainage, but don't tie up the nitrogen with uncomposted 
material. The more clay you have in your soil, the more organic matter you 
add... Good luck!
