    Ive digging up a section of garden which slopes upwards towards the rear of my garden from my patio in attempt to flatten it to lay some more patio or artificial grass .
    But I've now dug into clay and its clogging up with water it looks like a pond what should I do theres no obvious way to drain it has there is a wall on either side .
    Should i dig a small trench and fill with gravel at the lowest point , would i be ok to then put grit sand down and tarpaulin then artificial grass?
