Poured concrete edging is made with a machine that extrudes wet concrete thru a mold after which the installers apply a pattern, if applicable, and make control joints. Control joints are small grooves in the concrete where any cracking due to movement will occur and not be visible. Release agents are then applied, which are dyes giving the finished product the multiple tones to the coloring. Lastly a sealer is applied to protect the colors and provide more longevity.
- Poured concrete curbing gives your property an upscale look providing crisp definition between different materials.
- A wide variety of colors, patterns and styles make this a very versatile product in the landscape. Complimenting other materials such as patios or mulch is easily accomplished.
- Concrete curbing excels as an edging between lawns and beds, often eliminating the need for regular string trimming altogether.
- Sweeping curves can be made with concrete curbs for a softer feel or straight lines for a more contemporary style.
PRO LANDSCAPER TIP
Flat or Low Angle curbing is best for a mowing edge to minimize trimming required. A Higher Angle curb is more suitable if a 'raised bed' effect is desired.
