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 are used for managing surface water at its source and can also be used as an alternative to draining water from a stream/sewer network. Soakaways are a highly efficient way to deal with surface water. They collect all run-off from the surface and allow it to percolate into the ground or earth around it.

Ponds

There are many methods of creating a lake. Most involve digging a hole to the required size. The difference is in the type of impervious materials used to line that hole. There are three types of liners: concrete, semi-solid preformed lakes and flexible waterproof liners. It is a great way to incorporate water into your garden as a feature or habitat. For the best water quality, they should be in full sun and away from any overhanging trees.

A rectangular, square or circular pond is suitable for formal gardens. An irregular-shaped pool looks natural in smaller gardens. For fish and water plants, a minimum of 38 square feet (3.5 square m) is required. This will ensure that the water is kept clear and aerated. An artificial filtration system is required for smaller ponds.

Footings

Foundation construction requires the use of footings. They are used to stabilize foundations and prevent them from shifting. These solutions are especially important for areas with unstable soil that can quickly cause foundations or unreliable support for buildings. It is crucial that your groundworks team has a lot of experience in dealing with footings.

Foundations are vital components of any construction. They should be supported by the expertise of footing contractors. Any construction, from multi-bed homes to decking, can become unstable and collapse without the right foundations. All types of buildings, whether residential, commercial or industrial, require solid footings.

Depending on what kind of soil you work with and what type of foundations are being built, footings sizes and layouts will differ. 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.
