What is Subsurface Drainage?

When the origin of your water management problem lies below the surface, we have an imported, custom-built, top of the range Tile Plow to counter the issue..

This seamless process where drainage pipes are installed at specific slopes, gradients and depths according to a detailed, customised plan, helps you manage water table levels and salinity and optimise the use of rainfall.

Furthermore, this process cuts costs with up to 80% in comparison with conventional methods, and saves time as we can install up to 7000m/28ha per day.
