Field Tiling Explained

Crops require specific soil moisture conditions to thrive. Plants don’t grow well in wet, “mucky” soil. When soil becomes oversaturated, roots don’t grow much deeper than the water table. Early in the growing season, when plants are small and water is in ample supply, the young plants don’t need to develop roots to “reach” for water. It’s readily available to them. As the season continues, plants use more water as they grow. Water becomes scarce as the water table starts falling. Suddenly, plants need to develop roots to reach for water.

However, the water table tends to fall faster than plants can develop their roots, especially during dry times. This drop in available resources seriously stresses plants

The water table is lowered by adding drain tile to a field early in the season. Doing allows plants to develop a proper root system. An established root system allows plants to reach water later in the drier season when they need it most. 

Field Tiling Benefits

Every acre of your farm has potential 

Increased yields

Optimizing soil moisture levels allows crops to reach their full growth potential. Proper drainage means healthier crops, increased yields, and higher profits.

Long-term investment

Tiling is a long-term solution that improves your yields year after year. It prepares your land for the future, ensuring continued success.

Plant earlier

Well-drained fields are accessible early in the season. Gain a competitive edge in the market with earlier planting. 

Increased yields and productivity

Optimizing soil moisture levels allows crops to reach their full growth potential. Enjoy increased yields and uniform crops.

Reduce replanting

With improved soil conditions and lower water-related crop damage, you’ll decrease the need for costly replanting, saving time and resources.

Improve plant roots

Proper drainage promotes root development and creates a better soil environment. Stronger, deeper roots enhance nutrient uptake and plant stability.

Before and After


This land can’t reach its full potential without effective drainage. Plants don’t have access to the right amount of water and nutrients needed to survive.


Crops flourish after careful drainage installation. Excess water is efficiently managed, the soil is primed for planting, and crops can access necessary nutrients.

Tiling Process

Comprehensive Land Assessment

The process begins with a thorough assessment of your farm. Our experts analyze soil type, water table levels, and specific drainage needs.

Site Preparation

Tile lines are marked and staked out in the field for precise installation.

Tile Installation

Our experts carefully excavate trenches and install drainage tiles based on the predetermined plan. Once the tiles are placed, the trenches are backfilled and concealed beneath the surface.

Inspection and Maintenance

We conduct a comprehensive inspection of the drainage system to ensure it meets design specifications and quality standards.
