I live in Northeast Florida, we have personally had torrential downpours daily for a couple of months now. I know this is just a seasonal fluke and wont be the same next year It never has a chance to dry out. Our property is sand based as is most of the property in this area. Normally drainage is not an issue, however, our water table is so high now that we have standing water everywhere. We are unable to park our cars where we normaly would as they started to sink. Everywhere you walk you sink into mud. I have tried making elevated walkways with concrete block chips and wood siding to the chicken's run and coop to only have it sink after 1 1/2 days of use. I thought maybe adding gravel would help, but as everything sinks it goes right under the muck, sigh. I let everyone out to free range all day so they can get to higher areas (out of the yuck, decay, molding and mildewing of the ground, but isn't necessarily safe either from predators). Is their anyway to build this up? Everything sinks into the sand and you are still walking 4 inches or more in mud/muck/water. 1 acre of our property is completely under water and unusable. We have french drains already in place (which our road and water control district frowns on) and have the yard sloping to side ditches where the drains are in place and hidden. It seems adding more dirt to the area just makes a bigger mud pit and is too expensive for us to keep doing (would be great if that was what we were going for and owned 4-wheelers or mud bogging trucks). I would try pouring concrete, but I think it would crack and sink too. Any suggestions on how to build their run up and walkway to it?
