Hmmm, we all speak English but no-one speaks the same me a
gutter is a shallow depression along the side of the road to carry away
storm water...not as deep as a ditch, the gutter carries water a short
way to drain into a sewer manhole.

My "eavestrough" runs along the edge of my roof to carry water or
snowmelt either down into the tile drain or out onto a specific part of
my lawn (as opposed to dripping all over the place (and forming huge,
dangerous icicles in winter)). I use water from the eavestrough for
watering whenever I can...I usually ignore the first bit of runoff
because that contains all the dirt and crap that has settled on the roof,
but later during a rainstorm the runoff is quite clean. (Right now
though I'm using melted snow from the backyard).
