here are the facts..bad drainage to start and they[we] knew it....dug out 2 feet to sand loamy stuff added 1 or 1.5 feet of screened sand then topped off with infield mix ...the same mix used for ages...there is a little wet under foot when yuo take a shovel and stick it in and turn over a few inches or so it is good....mind you its early spring here and we had snow last week.....top drees with sand and scarify in??maybe just scarify[tines ] it in??the mix we used is a good one made local and used in many parks .do you think the surrounding water could be soaking in but it is dry[playable] when i turn it under a few inches????
