Cotswold Estates and Gardens can provide water sustainability in the form of flood protection, irrigation and drainage to suit your requirements.
Flood protection has been undertaken using: Ditch creation, cleaning and re-instatement; Construction of flood defence barriers and flood protection earthworks; Sump tanks with controlled pumped discharge; Planting schemes to inhibit surface water run-off; Creation of controlled discharge balancing ponds; River/stream bank stabilisation and Sustainable drainage schemes.
The collection and storage of storm water to slow run-off into drainage systems, permeable ground, streams and rivers has become of increased importance particularly given the frequency and intensity of recent rainfall events. Cotswold Estates and Gardens offer tried and tested solutions to mitigate the effects of rainfall ranging from permeable paving, sacrificial flood zones, water holding with controlled discharge ponds, large capacity soakaways and underground collection tanks with pumped discharge out over flood defence barriers.
Rain water harvesting by connecting gutter downpipes, etc., to underground tank collection provides a renewable source of water for garden irrigation to ornamentals, vegetables and lawns. Cotswold Estates and Gardens can undertake the design, installation and maintenance of collection and distribution systems including the elements of pumps, valves and controllers, electrical works, irrigation piping and dispensers – sprinklers, drippers, taps etc.
