Q: How long are the pieces and where do I buy them?
A: They are not “pieces”. The breaks you see approximately every 4′ are expansion/control joints. The curbing is extruded on each job site by our miniature curb machine.

Q: Is landscape curbing a new product and does it last?
A: It is definitely more appealing now than prior to 1999. As far as it lasting over a long time frame, it depends on the installer and how well the customer takes care of it! We use top of the line products to ensure a long lasting product and even go that extra mile and use a special additive and sealants to insure the clearest & consistent color.

We are so confident that you will love your curb that we have a Satisfaction Guarantee! We collect payment AFTER the work is completed and you are completely “satisfied”! We take it a step further and give you a “one year warranty” on materials and workmanship.

Q: How deep do you dig into the ground and how deep is the footing?
A: We dig approximately 2 inches deep and 8 inches wide. This can be done without disturbing your existing landscape beds. There is no footer. The concrete provides its own footing.

Q: What about frost and ground movement?
A: One benefit to concrete curbing is that is a continuous piece of concrete. Individual blocks or bricks will shift over time. Our curb is fiberglass and cable. This adds a significant amount of strength to the concrete. We place control/expansion joints approximately every 4 feet. This is designed to control the expansion of the concrete during shifting periods and colder months. Should the curb crack, it should crack in the expansion joint.

Q: Is the color painted or stained on the curb?
A: All of the colors are iron oxide pigments that are mixed into the concrete during the mixing process. The color will not flake off or disappear over time. You may experience a little fading, but this is normal in any outdoor color application. A concrete sealer can aid in the lifetime of the color; we recommend sealing once every 3-4 years.

Q: What kind of base is placed under the curb?
A: We make sure the base under the curb is compacted and level. Sometimes we will put a small layer of sand under the curb to ensure that it is level. Should the curb settle a little, the expansion joints should control the cracking.

Q: Will the curbing crack?
A: We experience very little cracking. However, concrete may break. We take every precaution to limit and control cracking with expansion joints. If a crack occurs outside of the joint, we will be happy to repair your curbing.

Q: Are you limited to a design layout, such as with timbers?
A: Concrete curbing is ideal for almost any terrain. A small concrete curb machine is very easily maneuvered, thereby providing the design flexibility needed for your specific lawn type. It curves, circles, or extrudes straight lines to allow you any design your heart desires. We encourage the homeowner to watch the amazing installation process. It is definitely a sight to see. From before to after, the transformation within a few hours is amazing!

Q: How effective is concrete curbing for keeping out grass?
A: Extruded concrete curbing has a proven track record for preventing sod from entering your landscape beds. Your constant (losing) fight to keep sod out of your flower beds ends with this invention. You also do not have weeds growing in between this edging since it is all one continuous piece, nor can the sod grow under it if it is prepared correctly. There are a few different molds (shapes) to choose from. The most common are “Classic” and “Mower’s Edge” style. With our machine, both molds have a minimum 4” height on the inside and 2” on the outside. The curb is actually 6” wide. Our molds are designed to be tall enough to keep sod from growing through it, and also tall enough on the inside to retain your bed. As long as your area is prepared properly and your grass clippings do not go into your flower bed, you will not have creeping sod in your flower bed area any longer!

Q: Does this process damage my lawn or beds? What can I do to prepare for installation?
A: There will be no damage to your landscape. In fact, we recommend your sod, flowerbeds, and sprinkler systems be installed prior to our arrival. Once you approve the design of your flower bed, we remove sod using shovels or a sod cutting machine. This also gives you the opportunity to see the flow of the bed prior to the installation of the curb. In other words, it still isn’t too late to change your mind about the shape.

Q: Can the curb be damaged?
A: The concrete curb is very vulnerable during the first forty-eight hours of installation. It is imperative to keep guests, children, and pets away from the curb for the first 48 hours. In addition, many homeowners have irrigation systems which MUST be turned off the day before our arrival and not turned back on until two days after installation. If the curb is damaged from any type of force, we can take reparation measures. However, there will be an additional fee for this service.

Forty-eight hours after installation, the curb is strong enough that the curb will not be harmed by stepping on it. It is “OK” to rake your bed covering back into place within the 48 hours installation. Just make sure the curb does not take a direct hit from any tools. It is best to wait before you begin any major replanting or changes to your bed area. When possible, do not allow anyone to dig underneath the curb or run over the curb with a vehicle. Your curb is only as good as its foundation and it is not designed to be driven over by a vehicle.

Q: Sounds good… but can anyone really afford this?
A: Compared to the “do it yourself” blocks that you may purchase and install yourself, our prices and quality are HIGHLY comparable; AND it is installed professionally. Also, as a single piece of highly reinforced concrete, this is a beautiful, revolutionary and low-maintenance product that is designed to last virtually forever.
