Concrete Curbing Lasts Longer
If you consider yourself a gardener or landscaper, you’ve likely encountered landscape edging that doesn’t do the job. Plastic curbing often detracts from your landscape without really curbing weeds. While metal looks more ornamental, it easily rusts and breaks along curves. Wood edging rots and can be eaten away by termites until your curb is nothing more than dust.
Even with the metal, plastic, or wood barrier that you’ve enlisted to keep your flowers safe, weeds can still wander into your flower beds. Edging from these materials can break down and leave your landscape vulnerable. With significant drawbacks to plastic, metal, and wood edging, what’s the solution for your landscape curbing?
The answer to long-lasting, beautiful, and durable curbing is concrete curbing! Concrete curbing, also known as concrete edging, is a landscaping alternative to plastic, wood, or metal. After the ground is prepared, a custom mix of concrete is poured into the landscape border forms, which then hardens to create a strong and stylish curb.
Concrete is easily textured during installation. To give your concrete edging a more natural exterior, you can opt for stamped concrete to look like stones or bricks.
Why Concrete Curbing Is The Best Type Of Edging
With several choices of material for your landscape edging, you may wonder why concrete is the best choice. Concrete provides a wealth of advantages when it comes to curbing. One of the key points to consider is that concrete has the strength to stay in place and truly keep your landscaping tidy. Here are some of the other major selling points to concrete curbing.
Style & Color Customization
Concrete demand has dramatically grown in recent years as more colors, textures, and styles have entered the market. You can create a specialized concrete color to accentuate the hues of your favorite flowers or to complement your building’s paint.
Concrete curbing is extremely durable, even in harsh conditions and climates. Compared to its counterparts, concrete isn’t prone to rusting, deteriorating, or cracking. However, if you do need to repair your concrete curbing, it’s a quick and easy fix that doesn’t require replacement.
Concrete is well-known for being long-lasting. Ancient Romans used concrete in their structures, like the Pantheon, that can still be seen today. If you maintain your concrete curbing, it can last for decades in great condition.
