DIY of the week...drain spouts...

Published on 8.22.2012 in ,

We have these around our house.

They're useful, but not exactly very pretty.

***And thanks to a very HELPFUl friend in construction I know they are officially named splash blocks.  And the one in this picture is backward.  Which means every splash block around our house is backward.  Maybe it's just a trend in our house...***

 
And unfortunately, they didn't do a good job of holding back the water in a few spots by our sidewalk.

When we picked up Mini #1's swing set, they had rocks under it.  They told us to take them and they've been sitting in our garage since.

I decided to put them to use under this drain spout...

Those look nice! We have those short ones also. And with the rain they didnt do anything either. I will have to show this to Don.
