Drainage Brisbane – Drainage Sunshine Coast – our Solutions

During an initial landscape drainage site consultation we will look at landscape drainage issues three ways. Firstly landscape levels, directing overland flow away from problem areas via landscape profiling. Secondly by moving surface water via underground storm water and finally looking at solutions for sub surface or residual water.

Landscape Drainage Solutions

Landscape drainage is directing overland flow or stormwater by shaping or profiling of the landscape as to fall or direct storm water or flood waters away from the problem area. Commonly, this can be done with general landscape profiling, shaping a swale or spoon drain or by a shaped river bed, doubling as an aesthetic dry river bed in drier times. As landscapers we can, in most cases, design a solution that does not detract from the aesthetics of the landscapes. These solutions are most commonly used for dealing with vast quantities of storm water we commonly experience in Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast.

Surface Drainage- Stormwater Pits

Stormwater drainage pits are ideal for dealing with moderate storm water run off. These pits are available in a range of sizes and are used in conjunction with suitable storm water connection. In addition to this channel drains are also available. In most cases, the storm water pits and channels should never be connected to a properties existing stormwater system, which in moderate to heavy rain events are generally already at or beyond the systems capabilities.

Aggregate slotted Drain – Agg Drainage

Slotted aggregate drains AKA Agg drainage systems are ideal for collecting residual water below ground. These, providing installed correctly, can reduce sodden area in lawns. Agg drainage systems are also commonly used behind retaining wall to remove water build up and reduce pressure on retaining walls


Another subsurface option is Capiphon™. This product  has been designed to use capillary forces and syphonic action to drain water from soils far more effectively than simply relying on gravity.

Capiphon™ is a drainage material made from a special formulation of PVC that remains flexible and is long lasting.

Capiphon™ uses capillary action and is therefore in dynamic equilibrium with the moisture in the soil. Water moves into the belt as soon as the soil reaches saturation, much earlier than when relying on gravity alone. Then syphonic action pulls the water from the soil. As a result, Capiphon™ removes 3-4 times more water than conventional drainage.
