Residential - Ground Water Management

Natural seepage across a semi-rural block can have a significant and negative impact on the property if not correctly managed.

Following a very wet winter, there were signs of excessive water on the block. To ensure that the natural seepage did not affect the house and garden, Frith's excavated and installed a series of agricultural drains

These were carefully positioned across the block to capture the natural movement of water and then divert it away from the garden and house.


Working in and around an established garden meant that there was a degree of hand excavation, while a mini digger was used elsewhere. laser equipment was used to ensure the correct fall of the agricultural pipe system to the inspection pits.

Once the pipes were laid, the trenches were 80% filled with crushed rock, a layer of fabric membrane was laid across the top before being backfilled.
