Garden Drainage and Soak Away Systems Gwynedd North Wales Drainage Services  

Due to our ever changing weather conditions it has become advisable to install garden drainage and soak away systems where required in order to disperse and manage waterlogged and soggy ground. Many types are available and we at Gwynedd Landscapes have the expertise and experience in providing cost effective solutions.

Land Drainage - Waterlogged Gardens - French Drains

Land Drainage works by providing and open conduit for ground water to follow into a disposal point. This is more commonly know as a French Drain System. A series of trenches are dug along the waterlogged area and a series of 4 inch porous pipes are laid on a bed of pea gravel and then the trench is backfilled with more pea gravel. The number or trenches dug depend on the area to be drained and the amount of water logging. The purpose of the porous pipe work is to  steer the excess water to another point in the garden where it can drain more freely or if this is not suitable a soak away pit of pea gravel is installed where the excess water is stored and dispersed over a period of time.

Alternatively a series of aqua drainage crates can be installed where water logging is excessive.

If water logging is caused by neighbouring fields or gardens on higher levels than your own garden, this can be rectified by installing drainage trenches or ditches along side neighbouring fields or gardens to divert the water beyond your property.

Paving - Patio - Drive - Drainage Systems

On existing or new paved areas of your garden it is advisable to consider where the rain water that falls onto these areas will end up. Installing the appropriate drainage system is very important, the last thing you want is a water logged patio. There are several ways to drain your patio. The best solution is to install drainage channels along the edges and have the paved area slopping towards these channels. The surface water is caught by the channels which are linked into existing rain water gulleys, or they can be linked to a new or existing soak away system. Another method is to install a deep trench along the edges of the patio which is filled with pea gravel to act a as soak away. The disadvantage of this method is when the trenches become filled under heavy rainfall the excess water has no where to go.
