DRAINAGE

Surface drainage can be easily defined as the removal of water, which is collected on the surface of the land. A surface draining system utilizes shallow ditches and also includes the process of either land smoothing or land grading.

Operating under a subsurface drain will allow for trouble-free service for years to come with careful planning, proper installation and construction with the highest-quality materials on the market. This type of drainage system is comprised of a surface or subsurface outlet along with subsurface laterals and primary drains. Through this system, water is carried into the designated outlet through primary drains, which then receive water from the laterals.

Land grading, also many times referred to as precision land forming, allows for the reshaping of the land surface with scrapers and tractors to provide planned grades.  This drainage system can provide superior surface drainage, however the amount of grading required to reach that level will depend on the soil and additional costs involved in the process.
