Drains and Drainage Services

It can get pretty wet in the North West of England, and if the global warming people are right it's only going to get warmer and wetter. In recent years England and Wales have seen a significant rise in the number of localised flooding incidents and Lancashire has certainly not been immune. We provide you with the expertise to create a drainage system that will help your property withstand the rigours of our climate.

Here are the services we offer:

Our experienced drainage engineers will be able to diagnose any problems should they be due to inadequate or broken drainage systems. If you suspect you have a problem with your drains then contact usand we'll pinpoint what the problem is and how we can fix it. We can arrange for jetting and CCTV surveys if necessary.

Please contact us if you are interested in this service.

Sports Fields and Golf Courses

We understand that wet playing surfaces are a particular problem for clubs in the North West of England. It can get very wet here, especially in winter, which reduces the number and frequency of matches, which for clubs in turn reduces revenue and generates fixture backlog.

With a proper drainage system in place you can maximise pitch usage and therefore profitability, helping you literally keep your head above water! We have experience in improving the drainage at several local football clubs, Bamber Bridge FC and Chorley FC to name a couple.

Please contact us if you are interested in this service.

Verti Draining

We provide verti-draining which helps assist drainage in highly compacted surfaces such as football pitches. The benefits of verti-draining are as follows:

  • deep aeration of grass rootzone which increases root development
  • relieves compaction with minimal surface disturbance
  • improves soil structure so pitches don't wear out as quickly

Verti-draining is usually carried out in the spring and autumn when pitches are soft but not under water.

Equestrian Centres

We lay drains for paddocks, turnout areas and livery yards, be they commercially run or private. Here's a guide in Horse and Hounds on how to cope with flooded paddocks. The best long term solution is to have proper drains put in.

We've worked with quite a few equestrian centres building their lunge areas and paddocks and providing ground works (digging out foundations etc.) and drainage for new and existing stables.

Agricultural Land Drainage

We lay drains on agricultural land where farmers have identified problems with drainage (usually by a dirty great lake forming where it shouldn't be!). The drains we put in help improve yield on boggy/saturated land. We ourselves are from 'farming stock' and understand the needs of our local farmers.

Please contact us if you are interested in this service.

As ever we promise you excellent service at competitive prices for all works we undertake.
