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 call for additional details.
How long does the process take?
Will the color fade over the years?
What about frost and ground movement?
Do I need to do anything to prepare for your arrival?
- 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?
Will the curbing crack?
Often 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.
