Garden Room Ground Screws

Benefits of Ground Screws over Traditional Foundation Methods

Garden Room Ground Screws, also known as screw piles or helical piles, are an innovative foundation solution gaining popularity in various construction projects, including garden rooms. Garden rooms, often used as offices, studios, or extra living spaces, benefit from ground screws due to their ease of installation, minimal environmental impact, and strong foundation support

Installation Process

Ground screws are installed using hydraulic machinery equipped with a hydraulic torque motor. The motor rotates the screw into the ground, effectively screwing it into place. The process is quick and efficient, typically requiring only a small crew and minimal disturbance to the surrounding area.

Load Distribution

The helical plates on the screw shaft serve to distribute the load evenly across a larger area of soil, minimising the risk of settlement or subsidence. This load distribution mechanism is particularly beneficial in areas with soft or uneven soil conditions.

Benefits of Ground Screws for your Garden Room

Speed and Efficiency:

Ground screws can be installed rapidly, often in a matter of hours, compared to the days or weeks required for pouring and curing concrete foundations. This significantly reduces construction time and labor costs.

Minimal Site Disturbance:

They require minimal excavation, resulting in less disruption to the surrounding landscape. This is especially advantageous in garden settings, where preserving the natural environment is a priority.


Ground screws can be installed in various soil types, including clay, sand, and even rocky terrain. Their adaptability makes them suitable for a wide range of projects, from small garden pods to larger garden rooms or annex living spaces.

No Concrete Required:

Unlike traditional foundation methods that rely on poured concrete, ground screws do not require concrete mixing, transportation, or curing. This reduces material costs, eliminates the need for heavy machinery, and minimises environmental impact.

Immediate Load Bearing Capacity:

Once installed, ground screws provide immediate load-bearing capacity, allowing construction to proceed without delay. There’s no waiting for concrete to cure, enabling builders to start work on the structure right away.
