Field drainage is the core basis of our business, having started out as agricultural land drainage contractors back in 1965. Back in those day 4" clay pipes were laid by hand.
Since those earlier times, DW Clark has progressed along with modern techniques and machinery. The basic methods are the same but we now utilise continuous chain trenchers which excavate the trench to a width to suit the pipe and then lays the pipe all in one pass.
All of our trenching equipment is fitted with laser grading to maintain falls even on undulating terrain.
Back-filling of the trench is then completed by our purpose built side delivery gravel trailers via a delivery hopper directly above the pipe and in 2014 we developed our own tractor mounted blades to speed up backfilling with arisings excavated from the trench. Ongoing investment in the latest tractors, ancillary equipment and satellite tracking systems allows DW Clark to keep pace with other large contractors but with a more personal touch.
All this combined achieves perfectly laid drainage pipe in a single pass operation, leaving the field ready for normal cultivations.
We have the machinery, labour and expertise to assist with all your drainage needs or problems whether it be a full scale drainage scheme or simple "wet spotting".
We can tailor each scheme to suit the available budgets and advise the best course of action to achieve the best results.
DW Clark Drainage . . . . so much more than just drainage
