Runoff Water From Neighbor's House


Not sure if your neighbor re-locating the downspout is going to help anyways if you are at the bottom of a hill. Water flows down-hill. The swale could be a good idea, but you have to have a plan for where the water will go. Again, remember it WILL flow down hill.
The grade of the land may (or might not) be obvious in a picture, but probably you should spend a couple of hours out there with some sticks and a line level and map out accurately what the slope of the yards are. (i.e place a couple of 1x 2's about a foot high, about 10 feet apart, place a level string across the two until it shows level, ... if the height of the string is two inches higher on one end, then grade slopes down two inches. repeat and map onto a piece of paper until you understand the slope of the whole yard)

Runoff Water From Neighbor's House


Here are pictures of the water runoff area.There are two downspouts in front of the cars that run onto the driveway, cown the grassy hill and under my poch where the lattice is. My downspout to my house is to the right of the lattice. That downspout is connected to a drainpipe that carries the water to my driveway. What can I do to block the water and reroute it to the right toward the downspout?

Runoff Water From Neighbor's House


Here are two pictures. One picture shows the downspouts in front of the car. THe water flows down on the concrete and the driveway has a decline toward my porch. The other picture shows the lattice below my porch where the water flows. My downspout is on the right corner of that lattice. How can I block and reroute the water so that it will run toward my downspout?

I hope you can see the pictures; I had a difficult time reducing the size.

When trying to share an image on Flickr, you have to do it a bit differently.
  1. Make sure you have your preference for images on Flickr set to public.
  2. Look for the share tab. It looks like a partial square with a angled arrow.
  3. Once you have clicked the share tab, click on the one that looks like a push pin.
  4. Copy and paste the provided coding for forums.

Screenshot of the process here.

Using that code will give you these results.
