Install trench drain in existing trench.


Greenbank QLD, Australia

21st Feb 2022

I have a low lying septic tank and need a trench drain installed. I have dug the trench and it is draining fine but I want it properly finished off. The trench is about 3 metres long. The hard work is mostly done but you may need to widen it slightly or adjust the pitch. There are some thin palm roots that will need to be chopped away. A hedge trimmer or something would probably do it. I’d like the trench properly finished off, appropriate trench drain installed and tidied up. Much of the digging is done but I’d like it properly finished off so it doesn’t fill back in.

Friendly, professional and did a great job.

Replacing brick pavers on top of a drainage trench


Peachester QLD, Australia

18th Feb 2022

This patio is paved with bricks and mortar. I had to get a trench cut through with a concrete saw. The pipes have been laid and initial backfill has been added and compacted. . Most of the pieces have been lined up ready to go in (see photo). This needs some more fill, level, sand and replace brick paving. It may need some mortar on the ends of the trench to hold the brick in place. I don't need mortar between - just sand. It is about 11mt long and 200mm wide. There is also another small area (I don't have a photo) about 1 sq mt that has pavers with timber sleeper surrounds and this area has been disrupted by the dingo and trencher. This also needs to be repaved. This is a rental property so I'd like the job done as soon as possible. I was intending to finish this myself but I've run out of steam after doing all the drainage work. - Due date: Flexible

Very professional and efficient job.
