Concrete Landscape Curbing

Concrete Landscape Curbing also known as a concrete landscape border is an alternative to plastic or metal landscape edging. Concrete landscape curbing has become more popular over the last decade.

Concrete landscape curbing has been installed in every climate in the United States and throughout the world. It is usually installed using a specialized landscape curbing machine based of a design that originated in Australia in the 1970s.

Due to the expensive and laborious installation concrete landscape curbing is usually utilized to create a permanent border. It is not particularly useful in areas where the landscape is likely to change, for example around a non permanent pool, which won't last forever, or a pine tree, where the border would need to expand with the growth.

Concrete landscape curbing can be used to highlight and emphasize a flowerbed or other landscaping area. Various colors and stamps are available to achieve different looks. A lawn mower wheel can be run on the curbing eliminating edging where curb is installed. The concrete border is also acts as a root barrier. Due to its weight concrete landscape curbing, unlike plastic landscape edging does not rise, due to frost.
