And here's how a cheap, do it yourself gutter guard you can buy on the internet from Home Depot, ebay, or Costco works with needles...NOT WELL. You can see all the water overflow is damaging the landscaping & siding. Basically the Easyon gutter guard does keep them out of the gutter but it ALSO keeps out the water.
It works much like many professionally installed systems that are flat, like leaffilter. It IS much less expensive for similar performance, but something like MasterShield will serve you far better.
