Decorative Splash Block 3.9 5 37 37
Crushing Disappointment I was so thrilled to see the leaf motif splash block, as pictured in the Improvements catalog. When it arrived, I was excited to open it, and expected to put it in place by the downspout out back at my new little back-garden cottage. Crushing Disappointment. The item I removed from its shipping package was blunt, discolored (i.e., all the same greenish-teal acrylic), clunky, and ugly. No subtlety whatever; no leaf-like color really, no variation whatever. Monochromatic & not a color found in nature -- at least around here. It is being returned today. Had I received what was pictured in the catalog -- color variation, lightness, deftness, a leaf-like look (leaves that look like leaves) and inviting quality -- I would be the happiest homeowner on my Queen Anne block. Instead -- ARG. So sad. If you have the 'real' thing lurking in the back of your warehouse, please -- switch out my returned failure and send me The Real Deal. Thank you. October 15, 2013
MaryA I purchased the pebble stone splash block and it fits into my landscape perfectly. Hoping for durability in hot climate! September 24, 2013
more than I expected The leaf is quite large; thus it allows more water to drain than I expected. September 22, 2013
Nice addition to our yard We incorporated these splash blocks into our rock garden. They're charming and add personality. September 5, 2013
Nice addition to our yard This is a nice addition to our yard, making the ordinary downspout look classy with the leaf splash block! Loving it! August 28, 2013
Best look I could find for what we needed Excellent service, first one was damaged, no questions asked, I was sent a replacement immediately. Purchased the "rock" looking block, as it goes with our front area & needed a nice looking splash block as it's going right near the front door. It's a bit pricy but couldn't find anything else with this look & better than plain. August 23, 2013
Looks great We purchased one of these and it is fine. We have had a couple of heavy rain storms since I put it in place and I don't know what everyone is talking about, the paint is fine. It is a bit pricey but it does look great. August 19, 2013
Beautiful addition I wanted something other than plain concrete, or a solid color cheap looking plastic/rubber type. I bought the rocky stream style for all around the house and they look great! We have had many compliments and comments on the splash blocks. I don't know how well they will weather and keep their good looks, as we have only had them for a few weeks. Great product. A little pricey, but if they hold up for several years, it will be money well spent. August 15, 2013
very charming design and colors Purchased the stoney splash drain, not the leaf design. It is exactly what I expected in design and appearance and actually drains well from spouting in addition to a more attractive appearance than regular drain blocks. July 31, 2013
Super product Great look and durable. Does a great job diverting water from downspout. Looks so much better than conventional drain pipe. July 23, 2013
Great! Made of sturdy resign! Looks great and moves the water away from my foundation! July 11, 2013
Short, decorative, effective I have an area that water can 'pool up' next to a sidewalk. Don't want damage to the walk. This gets rid of the potential stagnating water by bridging it OVER the sidewalk. (I'd used the long white adjustable drains before. But, they had to be constantly moved when taking mower or wheelbarrow past these areas.) I bought both a leaf and a rock design. They're working GREAT. Add beauty to my garden and home front! Easy to install. Heavy enough not to blow in the wind. I just don't know how well the resin will hold up over the years to come. For NOW, they're exactly what I'd needed. July 11, 2013
decorative leaf splash block I really liked the appearance of the product and was excited to put it in my yard. Order to deliver time was great. The item description said that it may wear over time. After less than a week the finish started to wear off showing an almost lime green color. Quite a visible difference from the original color. If one isn't bothered by that fact it seems to be a great product. I had expected it to wear much better than that. July 9, 2013
Great Look Love the way the splash block looks, is very heavy duty as well. June 23, 2013
Two Thumbs up Splash Blocks look nice & seem sturdy. Put them right out & immediately was glad I purchased them. Helped spruce up & divert water spouts. June 15, 2013
Better than expected! Beautiful, does the trick for a tricky situation, ( beautiful patio with a downspout ) , now a beautiful patio with a beautiful decorative splash. Well worth the money. June 12, 2013
Great I started with two of the leaf blocks last spring and liked them so much that I ordered two more. Then I was still missing one and this item Was out if stock by last fall, to my dismay. So, I am glad to see that they are back in stock! They work great, and they look great too. Can't wait to get that last one ! May 13, 2013
Decorative Splash Block did the job The stone-look splash block looked better in person than in the catalogue. We just had a torrential downpour & the water flow from our rain gutter was intercepted by the splash block & prevented washout of our new plants & mulch. It worked!! May 10, 2013
Using for detail in yard where a/c water drips from new home This item works so I don't have to make a cement drain and add rock around the area. This is completed and lovely. I bought the one designed with pebbles and using decorative yard rock around that! September 7, 2012
Good idea, poor execution This drain spout did not last one rain storm. The finish chipped off. September 4, 2012
Peeling This product looks great in the catalog/online and I thought it would be perfect in my yard but I've had it for a week and some of the green paint appears to have washed off and I can see the white plaster. It is not chipped the paint just faded away. Not a good value considering the cost. I'm disappointed. September 4, 2012
Splash block cute but not worth money I was extremely disappointed with this product. It's adorable and I was so excited to find such a cute product to brighten my yard. However, after only a week or so after placing outside, the green paint began to flake off. Underneath was just a white resin. It is not in an area where it gets bumped, so I guess the rush of the water coming off the downspout was what caused the paint to flake. There are large white patches in several places and it looks aweful now. Save yourself a huge letdown and don't waste your money. August 25, 2012
Unique Decorative Splash Block I was very surprised when I opened the package and pulled out this leaf splash block. It is PERFECT for diverting the water from my drain spout. It is unique yet authentic looking and wide enough to be effective. I also ordered one that was flat and had river rocks along the side for the cottage up north because I was looking for something more rustic. Perfect. I love them both. August 20, 2012
Great addition to my yard! I needed to replace a faded and cracked splash block but did not want the same old boring look. I thought this would look great...and it does! It is surprisingly weighty compared to most others, and the colors are subtle and natural. It adds a "finishing touch" to that part of the yard. August 17, 2012
Colorless leaves The splash block looked great as it was unpacked and added some pizzazz to the yard. However, with less than 2 weeks use, the color is coming off the edges of the leaves leaving a white edge. I would not buy again. August 17, 2012
Fragile Although the item is very attractive and useful for my particular need, the item arrived--in spite of being firmly packed in styrofoam--cracked in 3 places. One of the cracks was nearly entirely through the item. Rather than return the splash block (which is always tedious and costly), I Super-Glued and sealed the cracks and placed it under our downspout. Again, the appearance of the item is great, but I judge it to be fragile and assume it, regrettably, won't last but a season. Pretty expensive for that usage! August 16, 2012
Quality is lacking After only a few rainstorms, the finish is beginning to flake away. Very sad, considering the price paid and the wait for delivery. August 16, 2012
Meh It looks better then it is. Not as awesome as I was hoping, but for what it is, it is! August 16, 2012
Catch the rain Because of heat haven't completely installed yet believe it will work fine. July 7, 2012
