Curbing is the use of pouring concrete that will adequately line, divide, and demark particular surfaces from one another. Curbing is often used outdoors for landscaping purposes or on sidewalks and driveways to signal where one’s yard ends and the road begins. Curbing is an important technique that should be tackled with care, as improper curbing can result in injury or potential damage.
Curbing is used for a number of reasons but mostly to add depth, demarcation, and an organizational value to property. Curbing is easily customizable and can be created in a varied number of sizes depending on their use. For the process of curbing, we measure the anticipated area and build a trench that is then filled with concrete and left to dry. This concrete trench is then formed into a curb edge of your desire to complement your outdoor space.
Curbing is practical and helps to create a clean and organizational appearance to concrete surfaces. Most curbing projects can easily be completed in a day or two, depending on the size of curbing. Commonly used in parking lots to redirect traffic accordingly, curbing allows for drivers to access particular areas while marking off others. This adds protection to your other surface areas such as surrounding sidewalks, driveways, or lawns. Mailboxes, for example, are usually placed on curbs that have been created to form a barrier between the lawn and the road, to allow easy access for mailmen but to prevent others from driving onto the lawn.
Also used in landscaping projects, curbing helps to line flower beds, stairs, and your lawn from the driveway or main road. Landscape curbing is also designed to embed gardens and prevent them from erosion or flooding. Concrete curbing can be shaped in virtually any way needed to complement your lawn and is not prone to damage like other lawn treatment materials such as wood or metal. These materials do not bend as easily and can break or rust over time, making them impractical for long-term landscaping purposes. With concrete curbing, we’re able to build a trench that is pre-curved and looks effortless on your lawn when installed. Landscape curbing also does not damage your current lawn, but rather adds adds texture and color to your yard.
Sidewalks & Driveways
Perhaps one of the most common uses for concrete curbing is on sidewalks and driveways. This is because, many of these surfaces are already paved with concrete or existing materials that are usually lined with or adjacent to your lawn. To avoid vehicles and traffic from coming onto your grass or plants, curbing helps to redirect traffic and provide an almost-natural protection barrier to your lawn. Also used for irrigation purposes, curbing helps to create a crevice for water and debris to flow into for drains and easy cleanup. We’re been designing and creating concrete curbing for many years that is able to enhance the functionality of your lawn and protect your concrete surfaces.
