    Hi All,

    Posted this question yesterday in the garden forum, but with hindsight I reckon I should have put it in here.

    I've currently got a patio project on the go at home and I'm trying to sort out surface water drainage using lengths of Linear/Aco channel.

    Is it ok to have the channel lengths tight up against the wall of the house, or do they need to be spaced away?

    Any help appreciated.

    Cheers, Paul.

    Yes, they can sit directly against the house wall.

    However, we always apply a mortar joint against the wall first and press the acos into it .
