The problem I have is that roofwater pours down into one small area from three angles in the roof. This is because the main part of the house on one side, the garage on the other side, and a mudroom in the middle which is set back from the house and garage. The main part of the house has a wrap-around porch, which creates the 3rd angle of roof where water comes down. I hope this makes sense; if I need to post a picture or a drawing how would I do that?

I need help because whenever we have a hard rain, the area in front of the mudroom gets totally flooded with water and washes my mulch down the driveway. I don’t think gutters are a good option.

I’ve thought about placing some large rocks in the precise spots where the three waterfalls hit, but that still wouldn’t remove the water from the area.

Suggestions please! Thank you!

Not sure why Gutters are not a good option. As they could force the water further away from your foundation. While moving mulch is annoying. Water around the foundation could be a much more serious problem.

If a few stepping stones on an angle could attractively force the water further from the house you are set.

Just be sure the angle is away from the house.
