Too much water!!!

We just bought our first home. We love our house. Of course I couldnt wait to start in my yard. Unfortunately we have some water issues. We have spent thousands for someone to help with the issue, but they can only do so much. Our lot sits lower than all the others and we get all the run off. It gathers in our back yard. I dont want to spend a ton of money on a garden if everything is going to rot. Are raised beds a safer option for me?

Hi, It's hard to say, without seeing your yard in person, but I would strongly conside the raised bed idea. Not only will it help keep your plants from getting waterlogged, but raised beds are a better way of gardening overall. If water sits in your yard and you can't fix the drainage problem, then be sure your raised beds are fairly deep.
