Moisture-soaked ground is very common in certain areas in New Jersey/PA. It is usually pretty easy to spot, and very easy to feel.
This symptom is usually the result of undesirable grading. Because gravity pulls water in a downward motion, it does not run uphill, and therefore collects where it cannot flow away from the property. Lawn mowers often partially sink into wet, soggy ground and leave tracks. Children and pets playing in wet, soggy areas often track dirt and mud back into the house. Fungus, mold and mildew grows in wet ground.
