Around the edged of my garden gets over flowing with water every time it rains do you have any tips



It sounds as though you need to improve the drainage. What kind of soil have you got?

It might pay you to dig a shallow trench all round & lay some piping to a water butt to save the water

It could be clay or impacted soil - in which case, you'd need to dig in lots of grit and compost, as well as well-rotted manure, mushroom compost, anything like that would help.
