Actually the German trenches were a lot better and they were fortified with concrete bunkers and had deep dugouts as the Germans were trying to keep hold of land they had already gained. They had also got first pick of the ground so their trenches were on the higher, dryer ground.
Allied trenches were not even allowed to be comfortable as Senior officers said they would not be staying long so there was no need to make them comfortable and they were built in less defensive positions on the low,muddy ground without any bunkers.
In fact some of the latrines (toilets) were built towards no mans land on the Allied forces because generals were complaining at men taking too long to relieve themselves. Imagine the pressure.
