Sump pump drain


My sump pump drains very often onto my lawn creating a marsh. I would like to bury it in the spring in hopes of watering a garden or flower beds. What are my options? I do live in the Midwest so the frost line would be an issue.

Ayuh,.... You'll need either Extreme pitch to drain the discharge quickly, or get it below yer local frost line...

Better yet figure out why the waters getting in there in the first place and correct it.
Gutters, adding a french drain, regrading ect.
