Lets talk about drainage and soakwells?

Once you cover the ground in asphalt you need to allow for where the water being collected.

A few options, no kerbs and the water falls off the side of the asphalt, collect the water with soakwell/s in the middle of the asphalt and it is allowed to soak into the ground, flush kerbing to allow the water to pass over the top of the kerbing into the garden etc, spoon drains (long skinny drains) normally in front of garages etc to collect the water and pipe elsewhere.
