Redirecting drainage


What option would be best in this area where the hill is higher on right side at home .
Im trying to direct it away from home and unit though the ground is higher on other side of fence.Gutter drain still works but soil is getting washed away .I cant build it up much with unit an duct except against home ,
Would a grate be the best option ,an run it beside unit with a downhill pitch?
Any info is appreciated .

Re: Redirecting drainage


Interested in using that drain pictured, with concrete surrounding it to direct runoff into the drain, then into the piping that is there for the downspout?

That should remedy the problem permanent, although you might need to remove an occasional clog because the neighbors stuff flows downhill into it.

The white drain is not involved .
Its working seperate on its own.
You can see the long hill along fence .
Continuing to get lower till at unit ,its quite a drop.

Re: Redirecting drainage


You are needing to pipe the runoff away, so use the grating shown as a catch basin, then pipe it out alongside the other drain pipe, and lay a concrete walkway in there to stop the erosion on your property, with the catch basin in it .

I found out the concrete pad is under a big part of it.
I built up the back an the area beside duct metalw clay dirt an rock an made a V like down the middle with rock..all downhill.
Hope it will hold up a while.
I built up hill at otherside of fence to decrease water coming in also
Clay dirt seems pretty tough!
