Drainage is often an issue with many Bangkok gardens. Houses are often designed with drainage as an after thought, the acts of heavy rainfall being deemed an act of nature which we cannot defend against. Drainage solutions for Bangkok gardens are available, as seen in this latest project.
This project also entailed many other elements, one being a problematic cement slab, very large, which had begun to subside. The owners liked the terrace area offered by the slab, but were worried about further sinking.
A new garden was designed that removed the slab completely, with a smaller WPC deck installed, at the back of the plot, with a tiled slab at the front. The rest of the garden would be grassed, and planted with border shrubs and privacy trees.
Thick perforated pipes were run around the main problem areas for drainage. Within a gravel lined ‘French drain design‘, the subsoil was sloped into the drain, which was linked to the city drains. Problem solved!
This side of the garden was then decorated with the existing slabs and a new pebble stone design. The concrete borders were improved and beds planted.
New soil and grass were installed at the front of the garden, with an stylish stone bird bath located at the far corner.
A complete Bangkok urban garden transformation, an extension of the couples living area, and one that doesn’t flood during the rainy months.
