You Are Here: Curbing Process


Curbing Process Page

The machine we use is self propelled and lawn friendly. This machine produces a concrete edging for use in commercial and residential landscape settings. Since the machine produces and extrudes its own formed concrete edging, there is no longer any form work.
Businesses and homeowners are naturally concerned about having work done on their yards. One big concern is how concrete can be placed around flower beds without damage. Learning about the process of curbing helps to alleviate this concern.

1. Sod Cutting
The ground preparation is completed utilizing shovels and a non invasive sod cutter. The trench is usually cut two inches deep and ten inches wide.
Sod laying, sprinkler work and landscape work can be started 24 hours after installation.

2. Mixing
Mixing is done onsite with all the necessary ingredients added to ensure color consistency and long term durability.

3. Extrusion
Different curb molds attached to the machine produce the style of edging that the customer desires. The machine easily handles either straight lines or gentle curves.

4. Finishing
The finishing touch to our product is accomplished with hand tools. As an added precaution to ground movement and cold weather, control joints are immediately cut through the curbing every one and a half to two feet.

5. Preservation
As a last step, a clear sealer is applied to preserve color and protect it from the sun.
Cracking - Concrete curbing, like any other type of concrete can and will crack. We try and control the cracking with expansion joints every couple of feet. We also use fiber mesh and other additives to minimize shrinkage, which produces cracks. We experience very little cracking in our products.
