Drainage is the #1 management practice you can make to improve your land.  An Ellingson drainage system provides better soil aeration, reduces compaction and decreases soil erosion.  All these factors combine to result in stronger, deeper root development and allows oxygen to get to the root zone.  The final result is higher, more uniform yields and an increase in the value of your land.  A farm drainage system from Ellingson Drainage will put money back in your pocket so don’t delay, call Ellingson Drainage today!

Ellingson Drainage uses modern equipment, and has the ability to install 3” to 18" tile using the plowing method. We also have the capability of plowing in dual wall. This process begins by surveying the field to determine the best spacing, layout and size for proper drainage, materials list, and cost estimate. Installation is always “on grade and on time.” We have a directional boring machine to provide outlets under roadways and any other obstacles that cannot be trenched through. We also have several different sizes of equipment to make sure we can accomplish any job. 

Ellingson Drainage has been providing quality solutions to farm drainage problems for over forty years. We use full GPS controlled installation machinery and once the job is complete, we provide computer generated maps to create a permanent record for efficient tile location.
