By a solid pipe do you mean something like standard 3 pvc pipe? Is the concern that the pipe could be crushed?
Also I am not sure what the yard drain would be? If you are referring to a dry well to drain down into the soil I dont see that as an option. I am on heavy clay, I tried digging deeper to see if I could get to something that would drain but it was clay as far as I could go (about 4 Feet deep). The hole filled to with water to about a foot below the surface but eventually dried out late in the summer.
