I put pipes on 3 downspouts in which water drained away from the house. I ran it perfectly where at the end it stuck halfway out of the grass but not even noticeable and drained out onto the street. Now I am in a new subdivision and the Developer has put in a tree in that spot. Now the pipe goes straight into the ground and the water will drain into the tree. My concern is that there is not proper drainage (i.E. rocks and the pipe is just going into dirt. I am concerned that during a hard rainfall the pipe will get backlogged with so much water that it will start pourting out of my gutters. Will this be the case or am I concerned for nothing. I have seen alot of people that put their downspout pipes directly into the ground where there is a tree and never have any problems.
