Please check out the attached picture. Question #1 - What can I do with that pipe? The pipe coming out of the house is from my sump pump in the basement. It looks terrible just spilling out into my yard like that. Some have suggested burying the pipe and having it come out the side of the nearest downsloping hill. The problem is that my yard is flat. The nearest hill is the ditch along the street in the front of my house over 100ft away. Question #2 - What can I do about the bumpiness of my lawn? I have decided to renovate my lawn next August wiping out all the existing lumps of grass and weeds. Along with that process, I intend to power rake and aerate. Will that be enough to smooth out this lumpy lawn? Perhaps continuing to aerate a couple times a year, eventually the lumps will disappear?
