A WEEK after Brisbane's devastating storms, The Gap resident Marilyn Hunt is still trying to get more than 1m of pungent-smelling mud from under her house.
Yesterday six labourers used shovels to scrape away the mud and also moved boulders and tree debris which had swept through her Wollundry Place property after a landslide.
The back yard was all but washed away and the pool filled with logs, rocks and mud, The Courier-Mail reports.
The home's interior did not escape unscathed either, as mud had flowed through a h*** in a wall.
Mrs Hunt, who has lived in the house for 10 years, said the back of the property was of most concern.
She said there was a concern about the safety of the retaining wall of the property that backed on to her home.
"We need to take down a lot of trees, one is still very unsafe," she said.
Mrs Hunt said her husband was away and was yet to see damage to the yard he landscaped.
"He has seen photos and he is devastated," she said.
In inner-city Windsor not even an eight-tonne skip was big enough to hold the debris from the Brisbane Women's Hockey Association clubhouse.
Flooding in previous years has reached just above ankle height, but last week's floods topped at 1.5m.
Efforts to prepare for the deluge proved fruitless.
But secretary Kathy Proctor said that in the aftermath of the flooding, the club had been overwhelmed by support from the community.
"There has been a great sense of goodwill from all our volunteers," she said.
"Last weekend we had 150 people here for five hours helping out."
Mrs Proctor said while some fields could now be used, others were still recovering.
"We had to cancel fixtures all last weekend and this weekend. Four fields in particular are really quite bad," she said.
