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?

Answer: 
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

Answer: 
The water will drain in between each section where they slide together. You can make drainage holes too but that will also allow weeds to possibly grow through.

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.

Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
Thanks for your question. If you want this to be centered under your fence, then you would have to take up the posts.

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.

Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
Hello PlantNerd,
The channel guard has some flex to it but not enough to maintain a curve. The resulting curve would be very slight at best. Cutting wedges opposite the intended curve and then folding the resulting sections to meet would be the easiest method to get curves. This will result in some water loss at these joints so placing a rubber membrane before adding stone will help. I hope this Read More

38 in. Channel Guard is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 20.
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 !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks & works great! These work great to create a path so you can direct water where YOU want it to go. I would highly recommend. Can be cut if needed. Used at the bottom of my house gutters (with pond pebbles inside) to solve an issue with mulch constantly being washed away. Looks & works great!

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 Excellent solution for landscape projects I have used Channel Guard Edging for fences, splash blocks, and mow strips. It is easy to use and looks great! Gives the landscape a clean & finished appearance.

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.
