I'm making a flower bed next to my house. I was wondering if it would be ok to cover the weep holes with dirt or do I need to make somekind of box around them so they aren't covered? What if I extended them out with plastic tubing? Any suggestions welcomed.

Thanks!

Bad idea! - You will provide the perfect entry for all sorts of bugs - especially ants. Fireants seem to find weep holes without any assistance, but this is putting out a welcome mat.
