Can I plant a flower bed to help with the muddy mess in my front yard?
My front yard slopes toward the house. When it rains, water runs down the hill. There is grass there, but it still makes a muddy mess! I'd like to plant a flower bed. Any suggestions?

Putting in a flower bed will only put a bandage on your problems. Your best bet is to contact a landscaper to get some on-site advice about how to drain the water away from your home. Once you get the drainage taken care of, you can work on a flower bed. You'll then have a variety of options open to you.
