Burying gutters for drainage???

I am coming near the end of a very long process of having a house built. They had the gutters just going off into the yard. I want to take the gutters underground and used perforated tubes to eliminate that. The tubing I have is perforated around the entire tube, it is not the type with holes going along one side. Is this okay? I was going to put down a layer of gravel, lay down the tube and then put another layer of gravel on top of that. I am going to empty the tube into a large hole with rocks below a tree we are going to plant. After all of that, does that sound reasonable and how deep should a put the tube in the ground? Thanks for any help!!

Attach ADS perferated pipe to the downspouts and run it through a graveled trench like you are planning. ADS makes adapters that snap into either their 3" or 4" pipe and will slip right around your 2X3 downspouts. As far as terminating your pipe at the tree -- you'll drown the tree. Go elsewhere with it.
