Preparing for Lawn Drainage in Rochester Hills

All right, we’re in Rochester Hills, Michigan. We have two downspouts that we’re going to tie together for lawn drainage. Here is a video where I explain how we’re going about it. Stay tuned for more footage later while we’re doing the install.

Here are three by four by four downspouts and we’re going to do a clean out. Then we’re going to install a D Box to catch any leaves and debris.

Rochester Hills Lawn Drainage: Installing 2 Downspouts

Right here there’s a sprinkler so we need to keep that in mind for the install. All right, so over here we have two more valve boxes. We’re going to do a clean out. We’re going to have to cut this off a little high. We got to get some angle on this just to get out of here. So, same thing. We’re going to come to a D box and then we’re going to have to kind of work your way through here because it’s a little bit of a negative slope towards the house.

So we want to join these downspouts together and we want to Y them together, never T them together.   The driveway goes down and I don’t want the water going back towards his house. We’ll be installing a put a pop up emitter with a turf restrictor plate to keep the grass from growing over the discharge area. We want to be 20 feet from the street curb.
