    I want to lay gravel down the side of our house but the new level will be higher than the gutter pipe concrete drain lip. Can you buy a sort of "extender liner" which inserts into the basin and existing drain hole thus raising the edge? Seems like a lot of work if the only alternative is to take out the old drain, extend the pipe then re-cement the basin at the new height!

    You can get something with a grid in plastic - and you can graft the plastic in the old drain - I did this . But a picture would be good then we'd know exactly what you have - many different old drains before plastic ;)

    Thanks for the replies. Yes SFX - that’s what I’m after “concrete gully surround”. Why didn’t I think of that to Google!

    I did not know name, I simply bought them from yard. To find name I had to do an image search.
    Note that I cut them to size with angle grinder and fix in place with mortar
    My pleasure, sfk
