Ditto, or you could raise the soil level with gravel.

Is it wet all year round or just in the autumn and winter?

There's a similar question on another forum which may help. You could turn the area into a bog garden if it's wet all year round.

We have the same problem, last year I built a small raised lawn and it was very successful.....but then we had the builders in and it had to go :cry:

So I have to start over.
