Driveways

Driveway drainage

My drive slopes towards the house and there hasn't been a soak away or drainage gulley built into the drive. I'm looking for a cost effective solution to remedy this problem of rainwater pooling near the front of the house. I'm a end terrace which has side access and drains (if that helps)

i would say cut a small channel out and lay 6mm shingle in place this would help with the water. aco's are good but can get blocked up over the years

There should be a drainage pot collecting the water from the downpipe. By cutting a channel in front of the house and laying in aco drainage on a bed of concrete. We can then pipe the aco into the drainage pot . Solving the problem.
