The rain chain leads into a rain drain. It is about a 4’x4′ square edged with pavers. The inside was dug out about 6″ deep and filled with gravel. The spot where the chain hits was dug out a little deeper and a trench was dug where we wanted the water to flow to. Outside the pavers, a French drain was dug out, which leads to a rain garden about 10 feet away from the rain chain.
The second rain garden has underground drainage. This rain chain flows into an underground pipe which drains into this rain garden.
