Hello, I am your douche bag neighbor who won’t allow you to let the drain extender run onto the six inch strip of my property line.  I mean, with the natural curve of the mulch bed into the natural space created by the edge of the driveway where it meets the dirt/grass and allows the water to run like a sweet little stream into the street and away from your (and my, for that matter) home’s foundation
