|Our yard has become very mushy/soft. This is even when weather is dry/hot. When walking in large area you can almost feel your foot going into the soil. Do you know any causes of this? Poor drainage?

|I'd suspect poor drainage but you may simply have a naturally high water table that keeps the soil saturated. Sometimes you can redirect water with a French drain but you'll need to determine where the water is coming from before you can redirect it! Wish I could offer a solution.
