Alternatively, excess water can be swept off the grass with a brush to other corners of the garden.
After the water has been swept off, lay planks or boards down on the lawn so gardeners can walk across it without compacting the soil or causing more damage.
Spike the lawn
Using a garden fork, gardens can create holes in the lawn to allow the water to drain.
Do this by walking along the boards that have been put down, spiking the grass at regular intervals.
The holes should be around 10 to 15cm deep so the water can fully drain.
