Land improvement

As the world’s population grows, so does the need for food. Land is a limited resource that is under severe pressure due to construction. Therefore, in order to protect arable land, appropriate irrigation measures must be used to prevent the destruction of soil as a non-renewable natural resource.

Land reclamation avoids excessive wetland formation

Estonia is located in the temperate zone, where the amount of precipitation significantly exceeds evaporation. That is why the country’s rather sparse natural hydrological network causes extensive wetland formation. Around one-half of Estonia’s land area is forest, one-third is agricultural land and one-fifth is covered with mires and bogs. Greater focus should be placed on land improvement. As a result of mindful and efficient land use, we can create good conditions for growing various crops.

We draw on experience and follow the law

The basis of a functioning land improvement system is accurate knowledge of the purpose of land use, the geological nature of soil and the movement of water in the surrounding areas. In our work, we proceed from the aforementioned conditions, the Land Improvement Act and the Planning Act, which are the bases for land improvement systems. Our design projects are based on modern software and programs that allow us to create solutions in 3D as well. This allows us to interconnect solutions with other specific parts of the infrastructure (such as technical infrastructure, road construction, etc.).

We mainly prepare projects for the following works:

  • Renovation of land improvement systems.
  • Establishment and renovation of drainage ditches.
  • Establishment and renovation of drainage systems (agricultural/structural drainage).
