Puddling Clay

A simple, cost-effective and natural way to line your pond.

Puddling is a process which lines any channel with puddle clay, making a watertight, strong clay base. Puddling clay was first used on canal systems and remains in use today to maintain them. It was also used on a lot of the reservoirs across Britain. It can also be used as core for earth filled dams.

The method of lining Puddled clay in a pond is simple and a lot more natural than using flexible pond liners that are not as durable and cheap. Puddle clay is the most natural way of lining your pond – it is more wildlife and eco friendly. It is also a simple process – all it needs is for the clay to be compacted so that the air bubbles are totally squeezed out, this forms a strong watertight barrier, this can be accomplished by using a tractor, digger or a compactor over the surface.

Our puddling clay can be used for the construction of ponds, leats etc. on golf courses, fish farms, and is suitable for both for commercial and private use. It can also be used for sealing contaminated ground.

We recommend laying puddling clay at a depth of 200-300mm for ponds. These depths will need to be increased for heavier duty applications or for use in areas prone to erosion.

Sandbags for Flood Defence

High quality sandbags for domestic and commercial use

We stock sandbags in both traditional Natural Hessian and Polypropylene. They are ideal for flood defence in both domestic and commercial situations.

Sandbags have traditionally been made from hessian or jute material. This material meant that sandbags could be filled with sharp sand and used effectively as a flexible tool to make any size or shape of a wall of sandbags. Hessian jute sandbags were ideal for many uses as the material is completely biodegradable and when the sandbags had served their purpose they would naturally rot away and decompose.

Over the years, sand bags have been developed and are now made in other materials for different purposes. Woven polypropylene has seen much development over the years and now millions of sandbags are made using this material. Polypropylene sandbags or “Poly sandbags” are non-biodegradable and so can serve a different purpose. Sometimes sandbags are required to dam a stream or part of a river, in which case, polypropylene sandbags are an ideal solution as they will last longer submerged in water. Extended exposure to sunlight will accelerate the degrading process of woven polypropylene sandbags.

All of our sand bags are manufactured to the highest quality. Filled sandbags are delivered with the optimum amount of sharp sand to provide a highly effective tool for flood defence. If you have an area vulnerable to flooding our flood sandbags are an essential part of your defences.

Testimonials

“The gravel has been delivered thank you. Just wanted to say how helpful your driver was too, it is tight coming along the lane but he didn’t mind and went the extra mile to get the gravel far enough into my field so me could get past it. He was really helpful. Thank you very much.”
