What Tools Do I Need to Lay Drainage Pipe?

Digging trenches is the first step of laying drainage pipe. Depending on the size of the project and area, hand tools may suffice. But you will likely need some high power equipment to make the work easier and reduce manual effort. We’ve put together a list of both powered and hand tools, to cover all possibilities.

T​​​ool list:

  • Trencher machine - for big trenches
  • Turf cutter - powered machinery which will neatly cut through grass layers to reveal the ground underneath
  • Excavator - powered machinery for moving large amounts of dirt
  • Backhoe - powered machinery similar to an excactor but for moving smaller amounts of dirt
  • Shovel - for scooping
  • Spade - for digging
