    Rent an aerator, which will take plugs out of your lawn. Fill with sand.

    You can also purchase at your hardware store a spreadable compound that makes clay soil break down and drain easier...we had same problem.

    Put in Fench drains around your lawn. Our ground has a lot of clay. My huband borrowed a trencher from work. Put in gravel and drain pipe and a driain at one end. At the other, he let it be open . When it rains, ter pours out the other end.

    If your soil is not clay, you can rent an ariater for lawns. It pulls behind a lawn mower and punches wholes.

    Our lawn was so spongy, ur building was tipping.

    I found gypsum is a very good starting point... along with aeration, then at a later time compost & topsoil amendments... can get tedious, but you may need to stay with it for a few seasons (or years).
