Experience of your concrete curb edging professional

What is the curb edging process?

We will remove and dispose of any existing edging that you have.

We will spray paint to mark our lines. You have design flexibility with widening out areas to create more definition or make it easier for you to mow.

We will use a bed edger to prep a trench where the curb will be laid along the spray paint lines.

We will hand mix the concrete and add color. The concrete is poured into an extruding machine that pushes it in out into one long continuous curb along with steel cable to reinforce it.

We will trowel the curb to fill in any air pockets and cut expansion joints which helps prevent cracking in cold temperatures.

Depending on your choice of curb we may add additional color and then create the style you want, whether it’s a pattern or hand-carved natural stone.

About 1 week after curb installation, we will come back and seal the curb with a sealant. We wait about a week to allow time for the concrete to properly cure. The sealant provides a protectant barrier to seal in the color and keep it looking fresh. We recommend sealing once every 2 years to keep the curb looking great without fading.

What is the best time for curbing?

The best time for installing curb edging is from spring to fall where temperatures are consistently at or above 50 degrees.

How long does curb edging stay?

The general life of A+ Lawn Care’sconcrete curb edging is 15-20 years. The steel cable and fiber mesh strengthens the curb 5x stronger than traditional curb for more durability. Sealant is applied within the first week of installation and is recommended to be re-applied the first year after, then every two years. When the sealant is first applied the fresh concrete absorbs a lot of the sealant so reapplying every 2 years helps protect the curb from cracking and drying, protects against sun fading and keeps your curb looking fresh.

How long does curb edging take?

Depending on the area of the curb and size of the project, most curb edging jobs are completed in less than 1 day which includes removal of existing edging, ground prep, and installation.
