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.
