Wait until the soil surface is firm

Now into September there is an urgency to complete renovation/construction as soon as possible. With the persistent rain over the last week the soil is very wet and easily deformed. It would be wise to wait until firm conditions return before proceeding with outstanding earthworks. Handling wet soil not only damages its structure but creates a new compacted and impervious material that can set so hard that the physical character is lost or significantly impaired.
