Alternative to sand bags, water retention

I want to channel water from my house to a drain I am digging around the house. Until I can do something permanent. I would like something like sandbags, that aren't as bulky and don't fall apart. I'm thinking that something like a solid plastic structure of something like this would work. Any ideas?

I was wondering if it's too late to consider using the dirt that your digging now to make a continuous running (dirt/mud) dam ?
Or if you are able to get a tractor and get it on the property soon enough to make one(dirt dam) then you could lay some plastic down over the top and sides of the dirt dam and lay large rocks/blocks to retain the plastic Thus keep the water back and/or direct (channel) it.
Good luck
