The gutters at this residence were so full of grass that there was an overflow issue.
Not only could the water not move through the gutter as is intended but the down pipes were completely covered with matted roots.
A gentle rain gets soaked up by the grass but heavy or constant rain will soon fill the space around the grass and overflow. This overflow will either go over the gutter and down the outside of the wall and into the garden or ground below or could flow back into the house through the eaves into the ceiling cavity.
Either way damage to the property could occur.
The constant moisture from the grass and the corrosive sludge created, will corrode the gutter over time if not cleaned regularly.
An annual gutter clean will keep these gutters looking like this and prolong their lifespan.
