I assume that Dave didn't have good access to the far end of the tunnel? Thinking about it later, it wouldn't be necessary for the pipe to go to the other end in the bed, and get the water circulation, if the gutter downpipe was at the far end to start with. But having it handy by the door, means he can check for blockage in the gutter and adjust the water level as required more conveniently.
Dave thought it is important to run the pipe to the other end, but as I think about it, I am not sure. I think he makes the pipe turn to the other side of the bed so it forces it to have to travel across and along the bed, but he could have done that by having the overflow at the other end. However, his arrangement is neat. I will have to ask him ...

I guess some of the super growth might be down to the new soil. If he has a good balance in there as well as the plants able to take what they need in the way of moisture, that's ideal.
