Hi, Just built a 9x16 shed, raised up 12" on sonotube foundations at the corners and middle. I'm hoping to avoid adding a rain gutter because I hate cleaning the leaves out of it. Neighbors suggested:1. put a wide row of pavers around the shed perimeter to prevent the water from washing out the ground, but not sure how wide that should be. 2. put a wide row of decorative gravel or mulch, but that sounds like a maintenance headache. I figure a bunch of readers must have had similar experiences. Advice and suggestions appreciated. Thanks, Theodore.
