What Are Groundworks?

Groundworks form the essential foundation of any construction project. They encompass a wide range of crucial activities that prepare the site for building, ensuring it’s stable, safe, and functional. Whether you’re planning a residential development, a commercial project, or any construction work in Lancashire, proper groundworks are the cornerstone of your success.

Key Components of Groundworks:

Site Clearance: The initial step in any groundworks project is the removal of debris, vegetation, and any obstacles from the construction site. This clears the way for further activities.

Excavation: Excavation involves digging, trenching, and grading the soil to the desired depth and contour. This prepares the site for the foundation and utilities installation.

Foundation Work: Foundations are the base upon which your entire structure rests. Precise and robust foundation work is crucial for the stability and longevity of your building.

Drainage Solutions: Proper drainage is vital to prevent water accumulation and flooding on your property. We provide effective drainage systems to safeguard your investment.

Utilities Installation: This includes laying the groundwork for essential services such as water supply, sewer lines, electricity, and gas. Safe and efficient utility installation is paramount.

Paving and Surfacing: We offer a range of surfacing solutions, including asphalt, concrete, and block paving, to enhance the functionality and aesthetics of your property.

Retaining Walls: Retaining walls are essential for managing slopes and elevations on your site. They help prevent erosion and create usable spaces.


Groundworks are usually done during the preconstruction phase before any other work begins. This includes preparing the site for construction by clearing debris and excavating the area. Once this is complete, foundations can be laid and other work can begin development, design, preconstruction, procurement, construction, and post-construction

Read some of our most asked questions about tree stump removal below.

The quickest and most effective method for removing tree stumps of any size is to use a professional, insured operator with a stump grinder. With the proper equipment and experience, most tree stumps can be taken out within an hour.
On platforms such as YouTube, you may come across various attempts by individuals to undertake DIY tree stump removal through methods such as burning, winching, pulling with trucks, or chemicals. However, removing a tree stump is not a simple task, and there are no shortcuts. In fact, a significant portion of our work involves rectifying failed attempts by homeowners who tried to remove tree stumps themselves.
The cost of tree stump removal can range from £100.00 and above, and several factors can influence the quote. These include the size of the stump, accessibility to the stump, obstacles around it, such as the presence of gas and electricity which may require additional precautions.
Our state-of-the-art stump grinders allow us to grind the stump down to any depth below the ground. We have a variety of stump grinders in different sizes, suitable for all types of tree stumps, and there is no stump we cannot remove, unless the surrounding obstacles prevent the operation of the grinder.
Using Epsom salt can prevent regrowth, but the tree stump will still be present. The only effective way to completely remove a tree stump is by utilizing a stump grinder.
Typically, removing an average tree stump should take no longer than an hour, which includes preparation of the ground, pre-machinery checks such as sharpening the blades, and setting up safety guards to prevent any flying debris.
Burning tree stumps is not a reliable method for complete removal, as it requires excessive amounts of fuel and time, not to mention its potential negative effects on the surrounding environment.
To prevent regrowth, some over-the-counter chemicals may be effective for certain tree species, primarily garden shrubs. However, the use of root killer or commercially available stump removers are often ineffective for most cases.
The rate at which a tree stump decomposes depends on the species of the tree. In eastern California’s White Mountains, there is a tree stump believed to be approximately 4,805 years old, making it one of the oldest known stumps in the world.
The depth of a tree stump can vary based on the species of tree, but it is usually around 400-600mm from the surface level. Our stump grinders have the capability to remove any size of tree stump at any depth.
Tree stumps not only detract from the appearance of a garden or outdoor area, but they also serve as a habitat for pests that can harm nearby trees and shrubs.
When it comes to grinding out a tree stump, larger machines are generally better. They provide more power and make the job easier for the operator, reducing stress on the machine. Stump grinders come in various shapes and sizes, from pedestrian grinders that require manual movement by an operator to larger, self-propelled models that are controlled by an operator using manual controls.
A chainsaw is not a useful tool for removing a tree stump. While it may be used to cut through lateral roots, it quickly becomes dull because it is not designed to cut through small particles such as stones and soil.
Typically, it takes about an hour to remove a tree stump, which involves preparation of the surrounding area, utility safety checks, installation of protective barriers to prevent debris from flying, and finally, clean up.
Once a tree stump is ground up, only the grindings are left behind. These consist of fine wood chips and soil, and they are then filled back into the area where the stump was and levelled. In some instances, the hole is left empty to allow for the planting of a new tree.
It is not a good idea to leave the grindings behind as they might come from an acidic tree, which would make it challenging for new grass roots to establish. It is suggested to spread some topsoil over the area for optimal growing conditions for new grass.
Professional stump grinders range in price from approximately £8,000 to £70,000; however, smaller and less powerful grinders manufactured in China may not be suitable for removing larger stumps and may only be able to handle stumps smaller than a cereal bowl.
Before using a stump grinder, the stump is typically trimmed down using a chainsaw, which speeds up the grinding process, reduces the impact on the grinder and produces less debris during the stump removal.
Removing a tree stump without causing damage to the surrounding area is best achieved through the use of a professional stump grinder and trained operator, this method proves to be the most efficient for stump removal.
For a tree to stop re-growing, it’s important to remove the root plate, which takes in moisture and nutrients from the soil. Some species of trees may continue to grow as long as the root plate is still attached to the stump.
