The Q&A Archives: Problem with soil

Question: I have flowering shrubs in a raised bed. I mixed the existing soil with miracle-gro soil for shrubs. The problem is the soil stays too wet, almost muddy. When I water, it doesn't really soak in, in puddles. It's not that I'm watering too often, the water puddles even when the soil is very dry. What can I add to the soil to make it absorb the water
