Low Maintenance & Curbs

The amount of maintenance you are willing to do, or pay to have done, is a factor that should be considered at the landscape design stage. Low maintenance doesn’t need to be stark or boring – there are many options in materials and plants that can combine to create a low maintenance garden. Appropriate hardy plant choices, use of mulch, durable building materials that don’t require painting or staining, use of edging, even the type of turf grass species used all contribute. Poured in place concrete curbs is a service we offer that fits in this category and looks great too.
