Water can be a challenge in any garden, especially this one. A high water table with an underlying stream was causing this garden to be swamped with surface water up to 30cm deep in the winter months. With the aid of soak-a-way crates and perforated pipe we were able to distribute the water. If the flooding was to happen again the design of the underground crates will hold up to 3,000 litres before any breaches the surface. We also raised the rear end of the garden before re-turfing to ensure the problem did not happen again.
