drainage solutions

At KF Earthworks, we understand the challenges and complications that come with waterlogged land. Excess water retention not only hampers the usability of land but can also lead to more severe issues like soil erosion, plant death, and structural damage to nearby constructions. That’s why we offer an extensive range of Land Drainage Solutions tailored to address and rectify problems associated with waterlogged areas effectively.

Our comprehensive solutions are designed to cater to various types of land and water retention problems. Whether your land is suffering from surface water pooling due to heavy rainfall or underlying issues like poor soil permeability, our expert team has the knowledge and technology to diagnose the root cause accurately. Utilizing advanced techniques such as sub-surface drainage systems, we can redirect excess water away from critical areas, ensuring your land remains dry and functional throughout the year.

Moreover, our drainage solutions are not just about removing excess water. We aim to enhance the overall health and productivity of your land. By implementing well-planned drainage strategies, we can improve soil conditions, making it more suitable for agriculture, landscaping, and construction projects.

Garden and surface water problems

drainage solutions

At KF Earthworks, we recognize the distress and inconvenience that can arise when your garden is prone to holding water or experiencing flooding. Such conditions not only affect the aesthetic and use of your outdoor space but can also threaten the health of your plants and the integrity of your property’s foundation. To combat these challenges, we provide a suite of customized solutions tailored to address and mitigate waterlogging and flooding in your garden.

Our approach begins with a thorough assessment of your garden’s specific conditions, including soil type, topography, and the primary sources of excess water. Based on this analysis, we can implement a range of effective water management strategies:


A traditional yet highly effective method, soakaways are constructed to collect excess surface water and then slowly release it back into the surrounding soil well away from sensitive areas. This not only prevents pooling but also encourages natural groundwater replenishment. Our team designs and installs soakaways that are perfectly sized and placed for your garden’s needs, ensuring optimal drainage and minimal visual impact.

Sump Collection Pumps

For gardens where gravity drainage is not sufficient due to the landscape or soil conditions, sump collection pumps offer a powerful solution. These systems collect water in a sump pit before pumping it away from your property to a designated drainage area or storm sewer. Sump pumps are especially useful in areas prone to heavy rainfall or where the water table is high, providing an immediate response to rising water levels.

Additional Drainage Solutions

Recognizing that every garden is unique, we also offer a variety of other drainage solutions. These may include French drains, which are trenches filled with gravel or rock containing a perforated pipe that redirects surface water and groundwater away from an area, and channel drains, which are used to guide water flow across surfaces to a safe discharge point.

Our goal is to not only resolve the immediate issue of water retention or flooding but also to enhance the overall health and beauty of your garden. By improving drainage, we can help you create a more vibrant, thriving outdoor space that is resilient against the elements and enjoyable year-round.

Let KF Earthworks be your partner in transforming your waterlogged garden into a well-drained, flourishing landscape. With our expertise and tailored solutions, including soakaways and sump collection pumps, your garden will be equipped to handle whatever the weather brings, ensuring its beauty and usability for years to come.
