Blocked ditches and culverts are one of the main causes of sodden, waterlogged ground. When groundwater can’t drain away clay and soil retains it causing logistic and health issues for livestock, loss of valuable soil nutrients and creates extra work and costs to correct poached ground come the spring.
Clearing or digging out drainage ditches and unblocking or replacing collapsed culverts will help to alleviate flooding and waterlogging on your land helping surface water to drain quicker.
We can also dredge and clear ponds that have become overgrown with weed and silt allowing them a higher capacity of water catchment during the winter. Pond restoration can also be beneficial to wildlife and habitat creation.
