Green and Clean landscapes are the leading drainage contractor throughout Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan, with an increasingly volatile weather system, the water table is sitting higher. Many more households are suffering with surface water holding up on and flooding their gardens, rendering many unusable through the wetter months and only looking inviting for a very small portion of the year.
Types of drainage we offer:
In some cases, digging ditches about 90cm (3ft) deep with sloping sides across the lower end of a slope will be enough to take excess surface water.
Where open ditches are unsuitable, French ditches can be constructed by filling the ditch with coarse gravel topped with permeable membranes or upturned turf to keep soil from entering the gravel. Finally finish with topsoil.
Severe drainage problems require piped drainage where perforated plastic pipe laid in trenches on a firmed 5cm (2in) bed of coarse gravel and covered with 10cm (4in) of gravel.
This is a great way of collecting and ensuring you have a continual source of accessible water to use on your garden and even pump back into the house for water whilst saving you money and doing a bit for the environment.
Rainwater is better for your gardens plants, it has a balanced pH and is chlorine free. There's also no more worries if there's a hosepipe ban.
