Rainwater channel

Since we had a few gutters installed last fall on the problematic corner of the house, we’ve been noticing that the runoff is eroding the dirt from under the downspout. This is my first attempt at creating a little channel of angled stone steps to slow down and direct the flow. We’re expecting rain this week, so we’ll see how it fares and I’ll adjust it as needed.
