Driveways South Knighton

From minor remedial works to the complete excavation of an entire area, we can help. Before we start preparing a driveway for you, we first inspect the area. We check drainage and make sure that there are no problems. The most common problem is the slope of the driveway towards the property. We would either correct the levels or install adequate drainage. We make sure that resin driveways comply with all SUDS building regulations.

Depending on the surface of your driveway, we can lay concrete or a base course tarmac to prepare for a resin coating. We usually dig down 220mm to build a base. The ground stabilizing membrane is then covered with 150mm of type 1. This compacted layer of stone creates a firm base for the driveway.

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. To drain large areas of land, such as highways, they can be linked together. Modular or geocellular units can replace the support structure and backfill.

It is easy to integrate soakaways into a site. However, they provide very little in terms of biodiversity or amenity. They can however increase soil moisture and help to recharge groundwater. This helps to alleviate problems associated with 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 several ways to make a pond. 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. There are three types of liners: concrete, semi-solid preformed lakes and flexible waterproof liners. Ponds are an excellent way to add water to a garden. To avoid leaves and excess shade, ponds should be placed in direct sunlight.

A rectangular, square or circular pond is suitable 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.
