I need some ideas on getting rain water on a bed next to house
I have an old brick house with a brick raised flower bed on the east side. I planted cool season veggies, carrots, cabbage, and onions in it last year.
They produced very good but I had to water them often because the rain water goes in to the gutter and off to the side. I could put a rain barrel on the gutter with an overflow and a spigot at the bottom. But Sweet Thing nixed that idea! I am afraid that if I remove the gutter water may go in to my crawl space or rot something.
Is there some kind of diverter that I could buy or build to place in the gutter down spout to get some of that water on the bed without flooding it and possibly causing water to go under the house?
