Migrating Mulch

If you have ever had an area of your home where you were constantly raking back and replacing your mulch, you know how frustrating migrating mulch can be. The causes of mulch drainage vary but it is typically a sign that more costly issues of erosion, and potential moisture related foundation damage could eventually appear. Attaching  Drain downspout adaptors and Big ‘O’ Drainage pipe can solve mulch drainage problems, with a simple and easy installation.

With below ground installations follow these steps for mulch drainage solutions:

  1. Locate an acceptable area that is at least 20 ft away from the foundation of your home where the water can be diverted (such as a low lying ditch, out to the curb, or into a below ground gravel pit).  The area must have a constant downward slope, starting at a higher elevation, ending at a lower elevation to promote gravity fed water flow.
  2. Dig a trench from the end of your downspout to this area, ensuring there is a constant downward pitch to the slope of the ditch from one end to the other.
  3. Install a downspout adaptor to the downspout, and install solid Big ‘O ‘ Drainage pipe from the adaptor, into the ditch, covering it with gravel and/or top soil to protect and hide it. Multiple lines can be tied together using the Flexible T/Y and couplers.

Result:The water will be diverted from the end of the downspout through the pipe, stopping the mulch from being washed away, as well as eliminating erosion, and reducing the risk of moisture related foundation damage. This migrating mulch solution is made easy with Big ‘O’ Pipe and its many couplers.migrate mulch
