Drainage

If your prospective site puddles for several hours after a heavy rain, it probably has poor drainage and may be a bad choice. If you must select a site where water flows onto it, there are several possible remedies, such as ditching and terracing, to divert the flow away from the garden. This is much easier than providing drainage within the area. Instead of starting off with a problem, though, try to pick an area that drains readily, and you'll be way ahead of the game.

If drainage is a problem, dig a ditch around your garden area to carry water away from it.
