Driveways Scraptoft

From minor remedial works to the complete excavation of an entire area, we can help. Before we prepare a driveway, it is necessary to survey the area. This includes checking drainage issues and assessing levels. The most common problem is the slope of the driveway towards the property. We would either correct the levels or install adequate drainage. All resin driveways are installed according to the SUDS Building Regulations.

We can either lay concrete or a base layer of tarmac depending on the surface that is on your driveway. This will prepare you for a resin-finish. In an average job, we will dig down 220mm. From there, we build a solid base. We start by laying a ground stabilising membrane. This membrane is then covered in type 1 stones.

Soakaways

Soakaways are either rectangular or square excavations filled with rubble or lined by brickwork, precast concrete or polyethylene rings/perforated stock structures. They are surrounded with granular backfill. They can be linked together to drain large areas. Geocellular or modular units can replace the backfill and supporting structure.

It is easy to integrate soakaways into a site. However, they provide very little in terms of biodiversity or amenity. They do however increase soil moisture content and recharge groundwater. This can help reduce the impact of low river flows.

Soakaways manage surface water at source. A very effective way to deal surface water, soakaways collect all surface run-off at one point and allow it settle in a controlled fashion into the earth/ground surrounding it.

Ponds

There are many options for creating a water body. Most involve digging out a hole that has the desired shape. But, what makes it different is the impervious material you use to line the hole. These materials include concrete, semi-solid preformed pools and waterproof liners. Ponds are an excellent way to add water to a garden. For the best water quality, they should be in full sun and away from any overhanging trees.

A circular, square, or rectangular pond will be well-suited for formal gardens. A pond with an irregular shape looks natural in less formal gardens. To ensure that water is well-aerated and clear, fish and other plants must be kept within a 38 sq ft area (3.5 sqm). A filtration system for small ponds is needed.

A pond or lake can be a focal point for any property, provided it is designed well. Many people underestimate the amount of work involved in creating a pond or lake. They soon realize that it is not as simple as filling a hole with water.

Foundations

Strip foundations can be required in soft soils, such like sand. They spread the load of the building over a larger surface. To ensure walls are protected from the earth’s movement and to withstand any possible sinking, all houses require foundations. This section will discuss the various types of foundations and how to dig them. We also cover the various types of drainage, including soakaways, French drains and land drains.

Digging the foundation trenches for groundwork is much easier with machinery, as you can easily get the digger on the building site. For digging and removing earth by hand, we provide information about how to load a cart to make sure you are safe. The foundation of a structure is the lowest part of a building, which is what is fixed into and above the ground. Foundation is what gives buildings their structure.

Footings

Foundation construction requires the use of footings. They are used to support foundations and keep them from sinking. These solutions can be very useful in areas of poor soil, where foundations may shift quickly or give no support to the building. Because footings play an essential role in construction, it’s important to have a groundworks team with extensive experience.

A foundation that is solid and supported by skilled footing contractors is one of the most critical parts of any building. Any construction, from multi-bed homes to decking, can become unstable and collapse without the right foundations. Reliable footings are essential for all types of buildings: residential, commercial, and industrial.

The dimensions and layout of your footings can vary depending on the type of soil and the foundations you want to construct. Concrete footing contractors can tell you how wide, long, and deep your concrete footings should be. Professional groundworks teams are also needed to determine the best layout for your footings in order to provide the strongest support for your foundations.
