Where land is flat, soils are dense, or the water table is high, a well-designed drainage system is essential. Without proper drainage solutions in place, water may collect and undermine structures, cause rotting, dampness in your basement, and drowning of expensive plants and lawn areas. One of our Site Engineers will ‘shoot grades’ with a laser and create a grading and drainage plan to reduce or eliminate drainage issues.
There are a variety of solutions, techniques and products that our architects and engineers will consider when solving your water problems including gravel filled curtain drains, French drains, drywells, and rechargers. Drywells and rechargers will collect and store water from driveways, patio’s, gutters, washing machines, and sump pumps, allowing better infiltration that will replenish soil and aquifer. In some cases, town regulations require an engineered drainage plan. Geigers will manage all phases of the process from generating engineering drawings and receiving the permits to executing the work that needs to be done.
