You might be wondering what to expect when having landscape curbing installed on your property.
We will set up all equipment and prepare to start the process. You won’t need not worry about a mess being made in your yard. The heaviest piece of equipment that goes through any yard is a wheel barrow. We will also be hooking up our hose to the home water supply so concrete can be mixed properly.
If there is sod to be removed, we will follow the sprayed out area where the landscape border will be installed with our bed edger. This is going to cut out the grass, making a path so the curb can be installed properly. The soil is ground up and pulverized, making it great soil that can be either kept or reused by the home owner or disposed of. There is a fee is applied for disposal. We will rake up the mulch into piles for the customer.
Once all marked areas are trenched and prepped, the mixing process begins. We make our own blend of mixes, making the strongest most durable concrete curb edging. The mix is dumped into a wheel barrow and taken to the curb machine where the cement will be extruded and finished to give it the final look.
Having a strong finisher is a must when it comes to landscape curb edging. Years of experience is a must for this crucial part of the job, making sure all voids are smoothed out and edging is troweled to a level of perfection giving the edging a smooth professional look.
Stamping and Control Joints
To give the landscape curb the best possible look a variety of stamps can be chosen to best suit the look of your house and landscaping. All stamps are applied with a release agent to make the patterns stand out. Stamps are rolled on or hand pressed with tools to create the desired look. This takes place once the curb has been properly finished. Once the curb is stamped the next process is cutting the landscape curb in the correct joints to prevent cracking. These expansion joints are roughly 3-4 feet apart. This will give the curb some flexibility throughout the freeze/thaw cycle.
Sealing is the final process of installing the landscape edging. This is going to protect the curb from the sun’s UV rays and prevent the color in the curbing from fading. This process should be repeated every two years to keep the curb protected. This process can be done by the home owner. Recommended sealers will be given at the end of the job.
