Advice for landscaping in a flood plain, please.
We recently moved from a Co-Op townhouse in a large city, to a large house in a small town. We have half an acre here, which is great, but at least a third of the property is a mud pit, which is not so great.
Things to consider:
We have several dogs.
The yard is very wet year round (we have some very healthy and happy weeping willows on the property).
I'm at the point where I'd like to put sand and gravel over the mud soup, but my partner is worried about resale value.
I'd love some advice as to how best to make our backyard useable. The yard is fully fenced, and we want to be able to enjoy it with the dogs. Cost of supplies is not a huge issue, as long as the work can be done by one person (that would be me).
Thanks so much.
