Q: How long are the curbing pieces and where do I buy them?
A: You can’t buy them. Our product is fully custom and we manufacture the product on-site. No design is ever alike.
Q: How long does concrete edging last?
A: With a little care and maintenance concrete edging will last many years. Moisture is the primary enemy of any concrete structure, therefore we seal all of our work with a commercial grade acrylic clear sealer. Periodic re-sealing once a year will help assure a long and healthy life for your concrete edging. Call Todd if you need your existing curbing resealed.
Q: Can you guarantee that the color we chose will look exactly like the sample and will the color fade?
A: No. 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 sealer can aid in the lifetime of the color, we recommend sealing every year. Color samples should be used only as a guide. All of our color additives are precisely weighed for consistency throughout our process. Ask to see actual samples at the time of your concrete edging consultation.
Q: How long does the process take and how much damage is done to my lawn?
A: Depending on the type and footage of the installation, the complete process normally takes only one day. As far as damage to the property, we mix all our products on site in a special trailer built for this process. No heavy vehicles or equipment of any kind will come on the property. Standard equipment used will be the actual curb machine and wheel barrels for the cement. Our professional team ensures that the yard is cleaned upon job completion.
Q: Will the curbing crack?
A: All concrete will crack. Our concrete is mixed to precise specifications, 3000psi, and meets the quality of the concrete found around your home today. To control cracking, we install control joints every 2-3 feet. We also install fiber mesh in the mixing process of the concrete to assure strength. In addition at an additional charge we can add galvanized cable throughout or around tree rings to increase stability.
Q: How will replacing my existing edging with curbing effect my landscaping?
A: The installer will cut a 12″ wide strip of sod away from the outside edge of your existing landscaping. This will allow them to extrude the curb where your current edging is located. If you have a sprinkler system, additional work may be required.
Q: Can I afford this?
A: You’ll be surprised how inexpensive our product is when you compare it to other alternatives. There are certainly “cheaper” landscape edging products available, but none, which compare in the quality and beauty of concrete edging. Concrete edging is a great value and we have a product for every budget.
