Why It Makes Sense To Bury Your Downspouts

One of the biggest reasons for burying downspouts is to escort rainwater away from the foundation of homes.

Did you know that inadequate roof runoff is among one of the many causes of landscape drainage issues? This is why many people choose to bury their downspouts in their property. By doing so, it allows water to be safely transported away from the foundation and yard.

At Sposato Irrigation we offer a few landscape drainage solutions, which includes french drains, rain gardens, and downspout piping and burial. Read on and discover why it may make sense for you to bury your downspouts in 2019.

For Safety

Safety always needs to be a top priority with any home improvement upgrade. It is important to understand that downspouts can be major tripping hazards. You don’t want your child who is harmlessly playing in the yard to trip over one.

For Aesthetics

Let’s be honest. Your downspouts don’t add aesthetic beauty to your home or property. Many people even consider them to be major eyesores. Downspouts are often visible from the front view of a house, and this has a negative impact on the many older style homes because they tend to feature sharp and clean lines. Visible downspouts will take away from the angular appearance of a home. For that reason, many people decide to bury them, so they are out of sight.

For Keeping Water Away From Foundation

One of the biggest reasons for burying downspouts is to escort rainwater away from the foundation of homes. This is done by angling the downspout away from home. In some cases, this is emptied into a trench with gravel in it (french drains). This will allow the water to seep into the soil slowly. By doing this, it keeps the water away from the home which prevents it from compromising the foundation.
