This Is How I Dry Up My Muddy Yard

Got Mud?

If you live in an area with a lot of rainfall, you might be used to having a muddy backyard. Having all that sitting water in your yard can lead to lots of problems over time.

Having a muddy backyard is more than just a nuisance. Luckily, by following these tips, you can get your yard back into shape in no time.

Tip #1


Using gravel is a simple and effective way to cut down on yard flooding. By strategically placing lawn gravel into areas of your yard, you can significantly improve the drainage.

Tip #2

Kitty Litter

Kitty litter is made to absorb liquids, so why not use it to soak of a small area of flooding in your yard? Simply spread the litter, let it sit for 1-2 days, then scoop it up.

Tip #3

A French Drain

A French drain is basically a trench filled with rocks and gravel, which allows you to redirect the water flow in your yard from undesired areas to desired areas.

Tip #4


An inexpensive and readily-available option to consider for a muddy yard is straw. Simply spread the straw across a large area that you need to soak up water.
