Decorative Splash Block is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 164.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decorative Splash Block with Turtles This is just what I needed. Hasn't rained yet to see it in action; however, used a hose over it to see what it did and It works just fine. Blends in with the surrounding area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much more attractive that an extended down spout!! When I drag the hose over it, it stays in place whereas the extension of the downspout would come along with the hose!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It I have the Rocky Stream and it's just perfect! It matches my other stones and when the water runs over it - it actually looks like it's flowing over a real stream! I'm coming back for the Turtles.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Time will tell I ordered one of the Turtles and one of the Rocky Stream splash blocks. I have only opened the Turtles so far. After reading through the reviews, I saw that most of the negative comments were for the Leaves, and two things were mentioned as problems. The paint coming off and the included paperwork indicating that the splash block could not be used during the winter. So, with that in mind I opened the box with the Turtles splash block carefully, just in case I felt the need to make a return. The first thing I noticed was that, as others have mentioned, the color was not the same as in the photo online. The styrofoam surrounding the block had a window like opening on top and bottom, and I could see some of the block and the plastic in which it was wrapped. At first, it appeared that the entire splash block was black, but then I did notice that the turtles were a little lighter. I cut a small opening in the plastic and removed the piece of paper that came with the block. There was no indication on the paper that the block can only be used during the warmer months. So, either the Leaves block is the only one effected by weather, or because of the complaints, the company has changed the way it constructs the blocks to be more weatherproof, which in turn may explain the difference in color. I do not know. At any rate, I decided that I would go ahead and remove all the packaging and give the Turtles block a good look. It is much darker than the photo online. It's not black, but it is such a dark brown that it is almost black. It doesn't seem as if the color is painted on, but that it is the actual color of the resin. But, that being said, I actually like it, and the sun will fade it over time if it isn't paint, so it will lighten eventually anyway and look even better. The turtles themselves are a subltely lighter shade of bronze. They do stand out against the rest of the block, so they are visible. The block has a solid bottom, with the exception of a small hole about the size that a hole punch would leave in a sheet of paper, I assume it is for drainage. It is now under the downspout, so we'll see how it goes. If it seems as if it isn't holding up over time, I can update my review, but for now I am very pleased with it. I will review the Rocky Stream block separately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly as I envisioned! This is a pretty and simple way to have water run out from the gutter down spout vs. the old flat plastic one I replaced with this one. If you must have something, why not make it attractive and add to the landscape design? Right???

If I set up the splash block (leaves) under the spout as shown, it will run the rain water into the mulch of my garden, causing the mulch to erode. Can you suggest a better setup?

Asked by: Nana202
Depends on how serious you are about solving it. You can install a catch basin made by NDS and have this decorative splash block empty into the basin. Of course, you would then need to hook the basin up to an existing outflow drainage pipe or install a dry well at least 10ft from the foundation I have also seen some people make these decorative splash blocks empty into a "riverbed" they've made themselves which runs away from the house. Place some patio paver stones down and then cover it with river rock. Make sure you wall in the patio paver with patio stones so the water can be directed and not just spill off the sides. Cover the "walls" with river rock as well to disguise it and make it appear as one following riverbed. Hope this helps!

How wide is the decorative splashguard with the turtles?

I know they are approximately 24 inches long, but how wide are they from side to side? And is the width the same at the top part as the bottom? Thanks!!

Asked by: andreat
Look at the description of the items online. Each item is slightly different in width. I'd think that the leaves are definitely wider at the top than at the bottom, but the other two might be more rectangular. Just an educated guess!

Is it safe to put a coat of varnish on the splash block?

Asked by: tugb
I don't see why not, but I'm not an expert. It would likely prolong the life of the product from the elements. It's constructed from resin of some sort.

Can two of these be attached to create a longer block?

I need something that's approximately 40" long. If I bought two of these at 24" can they be attached somehow or work together?
Asked by: needhelpwiththisone
No. I just looked at my block and it would not work. Too bad they don't make longer ones.

What is the bottom of the leaves splash block like? Will it sit flat on a slate patio? I have a downspout that empties onto a slate patio and I want to divert the water off the patio and into the garden.
