The fall weather has been especially nice this year. And with the great weather more people are spending time outside as a family. More often than not, this outside time doesn’t have to be spent driving to your local park or places with admission fees – but can be attained through the comfort of your own lawn through simple things like concrete curbing. Concrete curbing helps make your backyard feel like part of your home – and can even create an outdoor “getaway” for your family.
Your Lawn is Part of your Home
Nothing is more frustrating to me than coming home after a long day and having to worry about my lawn. The first thing I want to do is kick back and relax and when the weather is this nice, and as an outdoor guy, I especially love relaxing outside. I’ve found that it is hard for me to relax when I see my flowerbed full of weeds or mulch scattered around the yard, or pesky grass that’s overgrown into those areas – yes, even as a landscaper.
I read an article recently that many people are investing more in their lawns instead of taking vacations. People want to come home and relax, and enjoy their home and yard instead of trying to get away from it one week a year. Isn’t that such a smart idea? Our homes should be a place of comfort and peace. A time for family and memories!
This makes total sense to me, and I agree. I can’t concentrate on spending quality time with family when I am stuck looking at the eye soar in my yard. One way I have found to help lower my stress level when it comes to lawn care is concrete curbing. This modern edging is fantastic! It increases the property value and allows me to do less maintenance. And the best thing is that it is customizable to fit the design of my lawn and home.
Customization of Concrete Curbing
Weather causes dirt to shift and weeds will always grow through cracks, but the great thing about concrete curbing is that there are no breaks in the concrete curbing. Curbing is one complete piece which prevents shifting and cracks – unlike other landscape edging materials like brick or stone. The piece of the curbing can be custom designed into the shape and form you want it to be. And with so many types and styles of homes, curbing comes in several shapes, colors and designs to match any taste.
Concrete curbing can be used to edge almost any piece of landscaping, including walkways, flower beds, gardens, trees – you name it. With its many different uses, there are a variety of customizable shapes concrete curbing can be molded into. What is wonderful about the customization of the shape is that it can be designed to fit your mowing needs as well. Curves and edges can be rounded, smoothed and not interfere with a mower or weed eater.
The color of the concrete curbing can be fit to match the exterior colors of your house or used as an accent color to your landscaping. With more than 20 different colors ranging from deep reds, to light greens, tans, blues and even charcoals, there is a color to fit almost any need.
The designs made on concrete curbing makes the landscaping in a yard really pop. They can be custom designed to look like brick, stone, slate or any other number of things. The designs are created by a stamping system that adds texture to the concrete.
Fall is a great time to remodel
Most people put a lot of time and effort into their landscaping in the spring just to let it get away from them once summer ends and the business of fall begins. The unfortunate thing is that most people don’t realize that concrete curbing is so easy, and there is hardly any maintenance involved. And in the fall many lawn care companies run specials for concrete curbing.
A Texas news source recently pointed out that for those in the Midwest and the South fall is one of the best times to spruce up the lawn. With warmer temperatures leaving and cooler ones setting in, it is the perfect time for a lawn renovation. Join me this fall in making your lawn provide peace and comfort – not stress and weeds.
