Ground Drainage

Posted: 16/03/2013 at 18:52
A willow tree may help, as it drinks lots of water, but plant as far away as you can to the house. Roots could also get into drainage pipes which could create problems.

Trees, plants or shurbs to plant on Soakaway ?

We installed a French drain system to our garden as we has a bad drainage problem, we also have a soakaway at the bottom of the garden. What plant,shrubs or trees can I plant to help drink some of the water?

Have looked at the pussy willow but worried about the roots greeting into the French drains, have also just purchased red dogwood as have read they can help.

Any ideas?
