Frequently Asked Questions

Why curbing instead of other options?
  • Beds without edging require a lot of trimming and maintenance. When grass and weeds grow into garden beds, they require lots of time, energy and money to remove.
  • Wood or timbers will rot over time and attract bugs and termites.
  • Steel and plastic edging will lift out of the ground over time. Steel will rust and has sharp edges which become a safety hazard.
  • Individual blocks or bricks will shift over time and pop loose. Grass can also grow easily between the blocks.
  • Concrete landscape edging is one continuous piece that will last for many years.
Is there a warranty on your work?
Yes, we offer a full one year warranty for all workmanship and material defects. For complete warranty and care information, please click here.
How long does the process take?
Typically the installation will be done in a day. Depending on options and footage it can take 2 days.
Will the color fade over the years?
No, the integral colors used are designed to minimize fading. A sealer is also applied at the time of installation to resist fading. Resealing is also a good practice every 2 years.
What about frost and ground movement?
A major benefit of our concrete curbing is that as a continuous piece of concrete it “floats” with the freezing and thawing of the ground. Individual blocks or bricks will shift over time. Our curb is reinforced with fibermesh which is designed to take the place of rebar or steel and add strength to the curb. We place control/expansion joints every 3 feet to control any cracking of the curb during shifting periods and colder months. If the curb should crack, it should crack in the expansion joint and not be noticeable.
Do I need to do anything to prepare for your arrival?
There are only a few things that we will need in order to complete the job:

  • We will need access to a water source (hose hook-up).
  • You will need to have any and all subterranean objects marked. We are not responsible for contacting the utility department or identifying these objects (e.g. invisible fences, cable lines, sprinkler systems, etc.).
  • We can move some irrigation lines if need be, but an additional charge will apply.
How long will the concrete edging last?
It should last many, many years as long as it is maintained properly. Standing water behind or in front of the edging should be removed, especially in the winter. Also, the edging should be resealed at least every 2 to 3 years with a commercial-grade acrylic sealer.
Will the curbing crack?
Many times, concrete will crack. However, several steps are taken to control and/or minimize cracking. These steps include:

  • The use of type I-II Portland cement
  • The use of fiber mesh in every mix
  • Cutting control/expansion joints approximately every 2.5 feet to allow the curbing to flex. This way if it does crack, it should do so in the hidden area of an expansion joint.
  • Proper ground preparation before installation.
