Customer Questions & Answers

Does it have drainage holes or can some be drilled in?

If I use this as edging underneath a fence , would the rocks be sitting in water all the time. Can I make drainage holes so the water drains?
Asked by: mar155
I imagine the water would evaporate or leak though the seemed pieces. However you could easily add holes to these, but weeds or grass might grow thru the holes

Can this be used along existing chain link fence?

I have an existing chain link fence. Can this be installed effectively without taking up my fence. I noticed it says that it has prestamped holes for the posts.
Asked by: Gump
It would work, but you'd have to cut from the edge to the center cutout. Might be more trouble for existing fences. But it would work in MHO. Just allot of work digging around the fence, and like I said you would have to cut from the edge to the center cutout to slide the poles thru.

Are these flexible?

I want a curved path for rain water to drain away from a popup. I'd like to know how flexible these are, or if they could be cut in small increments to create a curve. It's a gentle curve, not like a right angle.
Asked by: PlantNerd
Some what pliable, if you lay out in the sun, would be even more. But I doubt you could make these curve much, They are easily cut, so I imagine if you cut smaller sections you could possibly make a slight curve by inserting one side more than the other ? I don't think you'd be able to get much of a curve otherwise.

The channels do slide together but if bumped they easily come apart. Picture also looks dark green but they are black. I would not recommend if using above ground. Too pricey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy way to control water from gutters Installed new gutters on the house and needed a way to move water away from the foundation. Product is priced reasonably and easy to install.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fence border Nice product to use under my new vinyl fence. Installed 27 of this product and looks great when filled with landscape stone. Will definitely keep the mower and weed wacker away from the fence and post.. A little digging required to install under fence but it's worth the time. Looks great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from IT IS WAS IT IS Nothing much to say, good product. Only thing to make it better would do be to send someone over to do the digging !
Date published: 2016-10-11
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple and fairly effective. I used three sections to bring water from two downspouts away from the house. Both downspouts flow into the single run of channel guard. The pieces fit into each other just fine and as long as your pitch is adequate, the flow will keep up. I would like to see the sides deeper with an intentional transition section to teh next piece. The reason is that when I load this with stone (it is in a stoned section) it doesn't create a nice straight line and under some conditions short of heavy rain, won't handle the flow from a single downspout from a 14 foot gutter. Less water isn't a problem. Lots of water needs more depth. Width is fine, however. Overall, does the job but could be better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm so glad to see this product created. As a retired professor of Landscape Architecture at Purdue University, I’m delighted to see a product so right for solving so many site maintenance problems. Channel Guard is the ideal solution to the homeowner’s headache of controlling the fire hose effect of water pouring from a gutter downspout. Used as an edging strip around any building, the Channel Guard filled with gravel or other small stone receives and diverts the water all around the building, letting it be distributed gently into the lawn, leaving no damage from concentrated erosion. In addition, the Channel Guard strip is a neat looking edging strip. No weeds can penetrate the solid plastic structure of the Channel Guard. Since it is installed level with the lawn grade, detail grass trimming is virtually eliminated at the base of the house, around any structures, under fences, and by walls. I recall giving so many lectures advising young designers to devise details to develop a solution to these problems, with results that were worthwhile, but difficult to construct. Channel Guard would have turned pages into a paragraph and produced much less work and much more satisfaction. It’s a terrific idea. I recommend the use of this product with enthusiasm and confidence.
