Interlocking Front Entrance +Walkway BUT Downspout inbetween? (PIC Inside)
We are in the middle of getting our interlocking project done (front walkway, landing) by a contractor but we came across this issue which I wanted to get some opinions or advice if possible
We bought our place couple of years ago and this wasn't an issue back in 07, after couple of winters the pipe from the downspout came up as you can see the photo and its literally causing the patio stone to become un-even.
My Q is what are our choices and what we should do to properly address this issue?
edit: option: (1) we were thinking of removing the pipe underneath and connect an L shaped pvc pipe to let the rain water fall on our driveway (but this may be an eyesore)
option (2) we can dig and hide the pipe but we see some houses around our area and even if they've done interlocking front, the pipe seems to come up again.
