Whether you choose to follow your original landscape edging or re-create your landscaping, a member of our design team will be with you all the way. We can assist you by making recommendations on curbing that looks and works great. There are multiple colors and stamps to choose from.
The first step in the curbing installation is to prepare the ground for the new landscape edging. A 12" wide by 1-1/2" deep cut is made using a sod cutter or bed edger. Care is taken along the way to ensure the least impact on the yard and landscaping.
Concrete is mixed on site. A blend of portland cement, concrete sand, water and fiber mesh (for added strength) is mixed and transported to the area with wheelbarrows. Again, no heavy equipment or cement trucks tearing up your yard.
The concrete is then fed into an extruding machine, compacted, and pushed out through the desired mold. Because no forms are needed, we are able to create flowing curves, straight lines, and even circles if desired.
The curbing is then finished with specially designed trowels that are matched to the mold to ensure a smooth, void free border. Textures and patterns would then be applied if called for.
Control joints are cut in the landscape curbing every 18 to 24 inches to help control the ground forces.
The final step is to apply a solevent based concrete sealer. This will aid the curbing curing process and gives the concrete a protective coating.
