    put some sort of edging around the bed and it will at least hold most of the mulch in there.

    Make sure it's on thick, and keep those gutters in good shape.

    Clean the gutters is probably all that's necessary.

    You can get a tackifier made for straw, will need reapplied regularly.

    Put large river rock or ? in the path of the flow, perpendicular to the house (straight out) to slow the flow. You know wood floats.
