    You titled your post Drainage Problem. So far you haven't described anything that indicates a problem of any kind.

    thanks for your time,but even the plumber found it odd that there was no water in the pipes after this downpour and said that mud may have clogged the pea gravel up,is this possible.

    yes it is possible for expansive soil, clay, silt, "mud" etc. to choke a drainage system.

    larger gutter may be needed or additional down spouts may need to be installed.
    After the gutter issues has been taken care of, pipe out the down spouts by installing at least a 4 inch solid drain pipe to the street or the back corner of the backyard. If you are connecting more than one down spout to a drain pipe, a large pipe may be needed.
