I have a new construction home in Wisconsin. I am planning to bury my downspouts with 4 inch, NON-perforated tubing. No problem so far..
Well The problem is a low pitched yard. I would like to bury them so they aren't viewable and secondly trip over them in the yard.
I've been reading some material about French Drains and I have a few questions..
1.Can/Should the downspouts be buried in a French Drain style? Or, do I just trench and bury the downspouts to a master French Drain in the yard.
2. Terminiation. If I bury them should I worry about too much water collecting at the ends.. Should I install a catch basin at each end or just where there is a lot of water collecting..
2. Frost Line.How about the winter and Freezing ?? How far down should the trench be??..
