Unhappy Don't want gutters

Have an attached rear porch (10' x 25'). When it rains, the rain water from the porch roof dumps into planting boxes below - not good.

I don't want to install gutters and downspouts bacause it would deter from the porches appearance (my opinion).

Have heard of those rain 'deflectors' that attach along the drip edge and has louvers that deflect the rain water but cannot find anywhere.

Does anyone know where I can get those or have a better idea?

Thanks!

I typed in "rain deflectors" in my searchbar and got 10+ pages of results. Good luck.

True - but all are related to automobile rain diverters. I did find a product called Rainhandler that diffuses the rainwater but costs $24 for a 5' section. A little too expensive for me.

Other ideas?

Type in house roof rain diverter to see options for aluminum strip installed along roof beneath shingles to divert rain.
