If you are looking to add a lily bed in a not so perfect spot, You could dig down deeper than what you plan to put your bulbs, and install perforated pipe. Also known as drain tile. This will help with ground water especially after a heavy rain. You can then direct it to a better suited place. Plus you can customize it to your own design. Curve it, straight runs, a "grid" system. 10' for 200'. It's light weight and the fittings if needed snap together

Correction, it was meant to be soil in the topic, my phone phone auto corrected and i didn't catch it before it posted. Sorry

Thank you to whoever fixed it for me.

Yep Dave I think we caught that auto correct! I don't know if it is because I am so over tired right now or what but it gave me a terrible case of the giggles thinking of ways to respond. I tip my hat to you.

Well glad i could give someone a laugh. I wasn't laughing earlier today when my dog dog did what she did in this picture!

Knocked off both pots this weekend. She puts her balls in the firepit. (Who knows why) but gets mad if we don't get it for her.
