Ashford's Leaders in Soakaways

Working across Kent, including Ashford, we utilise the most effective soakaways to dramatically improve water drainage to waterlogged soil; and at the same time, remove surface water and the damage to building foundations that brings.

Soakaways are essentially holes in the ground that create a void for surface water to flow into. This encourages the water dispersal back into the soil and the water table.   

Perfect for low lying properties across Ashford and Kent that suffer from waterlogged earth or minor flooding after heavy rainfall, our soakaways are also able to be utilised in and around all kinds of commercial and domestic properties to generally improve the drainage in a specific location.
