I use 4 inch, perforated corrugated drainage pipe for my runs (up to 120 ft.)
I first dug the trench, then laid in landscape fabric, inserted the pipe, then 
wrapped the fabric over the top of the pipe.  This should keep most dirt out 
and then backfilled.  I've never had a problem pulling cables through, even 
after it had a few inside already.  At each entry point, I slit and cut a 
plastic cap to allow the cables to exit but keep the critters out.  No problems 
so far and real inexpensive.  Phil  KB9CRY
