Keeping a Dry Lot dry
I will be building a barn soon and I am located in a wetter area (marshy). I want to put in dry lots but don't want them muddy. What are some different ways and ideas to prevent the dry lots from becoming muddy.

The only way to make it last is to dig it up and install a good drainage system.
