Officially "Awesome" because Frotter said so!

Driveway is at the wrong side of the plot to where I'd envisage rainwater collection, the main pipe connecting to drain from downpipes at the front of the house are over there too.

I need to install full length of driveway water channel down the side of the house (relieve an issue with old slab  & water run off / penetration, happy to then run it round the frontage.

Now then, can I operate a diversion so it is temporarily feeding into the terracotta pipe & away to mains sewer to start resolving the water penetrating for now, then add a section later (extended) so it sumps then lifts into an aboveground storage that doubles as a boundary wall?

If I could remove my field facing fence, construct a stone clad wall of tanks to then be used as needed & as a back up for my specimen fir tree to help it out if needed in drought conditions etc, that would be neat.

Years ago I realised that due to proximity to the road a front garden underground rainwater collection system was a no no,  the trees ongoing survival is imperative to us, so if need be to be able to trickle feed it via storage is something I'd like to look into.
