Drainage ditch for gutter runoff

I've extended 4" corrugated pipe from my Gutters. I have used a pop up emitter on them and have put drainage rock under the pop up. Should I put landscape fabric over the rock before I cover it with dirt and sod? And would it have been better if I laid down the fabric before I put the rock in?? Thanks for the help...

Yes, put landscape fabric over the rock. Yes, it might have been better if you put fabric underneath it as well. The purpose of the fabric is to keep the dirt from infiltrating your rock.
