South Yorkshire, United Kingdom
I have a 6ft fence at the bottom of my garden. Beyond that fence is the railway embankment which has various trees growing along its top. The 2 trees in my area are 1 oak and 1 maple. I have noticed in the last 6 months that there is a gap forming at the base of my fence which is getting larger. I stood near my fence and noticed how soft and pliable the ground is, also it was easy to squash the ground and my foot went under the fence making the gap a little bigger. I am wondering if the type of trees are affecting the soil or should I be looking at some other reason why the ground is soft.
