Canterbury's Leading Soakaway Installers

Working for homeowners and commercial clients across Kent and Canterbury, we utilise the very best soakaways to dramatically improve water drainage to waterlogged soil; and in the process, remove surface water and the damage to building foundations that brings.

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

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