A hinged downspout extension is a excellent way to move the water from you gutter system away from you homes foundation and still gives you the convenience of unobstructed lawn maintenance. We recommend that the downspout elbow be installed 12" above the sod (as shown in photo above); this will make for easier grass trimming, and will prevent damaging the elbow and extension with mowing equipment.
