Test the drainage of your lawn – Dig a hole about six inches deep and fill it with water. The hole should be completely empty within eight hours. If in eight hours, there is still water in that hole you should have your soil tested because you most likely have a drainage problem.
If you want to find out if you have the opposite problem, water your lawn and then dig a six inch hole in the watered area after 48 hours. If the hole is entirely dry after just 48 hours, then your lawn is draining too quickly.
