Is there a doctor in the house?
Well, if not a doctor, perhaps an EMT? A nurse? Even a veterinarian perhaps?
Who else could come up with this as a solution to getting the downspout water across the walkway instead of dumping next to the foundation where it might damage the foundation or flood the walkway making it slippery?
While I can appreciate the effort, this approach will not work on many levels. Lots of debris goes down the downspout along with the water and just a little piece of moss will render this system non functional resulting in the gutter overflowing right where you don’t want the water anyway.
This intravenous watering of the lawn is likely not very successful.
Sometimes I think the only reason that things are done the way they are around homes is so that I will have unfathomable blog fodder!
