Types of drainage we install
Ideal for redirecting subsurface water, our French drains use perforated pipes and gravel to prevent waterlogging, enhancing your garden’s health and structure. French drains collect water from the surrounding area and divert it to a convenient location. They are a versatile solution which can daramitically improve drainage in most gardens.
Soak away crates
Our soak away crates offer an efficient underground solution for managing excess water, ensuring it’s absorbed into the ground, perfect for areas prone to saturation. Soal away crates are ideal for less severe drainage issues and in areas where French drains are not workable.
For gardens where gravity drainage is insufficient, our pumped drainage systems actively move water away from problem areas, ensuring effective water management in all conditions.
Designed for surface water collection, our channel drains are perfect for patios, driveways, and garden paths, providing a discreet and efficient water evacuation route.
Types of drainage
Frequently Asked Questions
My patio floods, what type of drainage do i need?
The most common solution to a flooding patio is to install a channel drain along the threshold of the door or the outer edge of the patio. The channel drain will catch and divert water into the nearest surface water drain.
What type of drainage is best for a wet lawn?
In most cases the best type of drainage for a wet lawn is a French drains system. Lawns usually stay wet because there is nowhere for the water to go. French drains allow the water to drain from the lawn faster which means it will dry out quicker after it rains.
Will the installation process damage my garden?
Our team are vary careful and keep damage to a minimum however, digging up parts of the garden and removing waste will always result in some temportary damage to grass or planting beds if they are in the area. This usually heals over a couple of weeks and with the additonal drainage, the garden will be looking better than ever in no time.
Will artificial grass fix my drainage issues?
Artificial grass can mitigate mild surface drainage issues by allowing water to seep through its permeable backing. However, for more significant drainage problems, additional measures are often necessary. While artificial grass reduces surface pooling, comprehensive solutions, like French drains, are required to effectively manage water runoff and prevent waterlogging. Artificial grass can be a component of a drainage solution, but it is not a complete fix.
I have clay soil, what type of drainage is best?
This will depend on how clay the soil is and how bad the drainage issue is. In most cases, French drains can be all thats needed however in some cases you will need to replace the top layer of soil with loam soil. This is because clay lets water through very slowly so even with drainage, the water may not be able soak through the clay soil to get into the drains.
