drainage

Post by ags » Sat Feb 21, 2009 3:36 pm

Last year our neighbours installed decking we are sure they put drainage under the decking. Since then our garden is flooded every time it rains, previosly we had no issues. How do we prove they are to blame for this change. Advice would be appreciated

This should be quite straightforward.

1 Is the water coming into your ground coming from a piped source? ie a newly installed drain pipe.

if so it is your neighbours problem to resolve 100%

2 Is the water just shedding off the decking, with no drainage pipes taking the water away?

if so it is your responsibility.

Correct.

Incorrect - once rain falls on an impervious surface, and in this context, timber decking is considered impervious, it is the responsibility of the householder to deal with it entirely within his own curtailage.




ags, you say he put drainage under the decking, do you know what this is connected to?

Drainage is very important especially in decking to avoid damage to other property.

Try to approach in a respectful and calm manner and ask if they have a drainage and tell properly about your garden.

Myra Hush, why are you responding to old discussions with pointless posts?

Trying to increase your post count before posting a link by chance?
