Landscape curbing is an attractive way to increase your curb appeal and decrease your yard work. They are a weed stopper and an erosion barrier and because they don’t rust, degrade or shift they’re the sensible alternative to conventional edging. And if you’ve ever tried to convince that big roll of plastic landscape edging to conform to your wishes you’ll be glad you chose concrete curbing.
What are the uses for curbing?
Concrete landscape curbing uses are almost limitless. From lining a driveway to a patio border they can be used for more than just landscaping. But they really do shine when you outline your beds with curving, sweeping lines that immediately highlight the area in a neat and upscale fashion.
How is concrete curbing made?
The best thing about curbing is that it is completely customizable. Each piece can be colored, shaped and stamped to your specifications to make your curbing just your style. Olympic recommends spending time in your yard and making notes on the shape, texture and color that you like best.
What are the benefits of curbing?
If you’ve ever tried to add soil to raise a flowerbed you’ve probably seen it slide and shrink away until it’s level again with the rest of your yard. Concrete curbing keeps that soil in place so you can build up your beds and increase the interest in your yard. Curbing keeps weeds away from your flowers and shrubs so your ongoing battle can be eased a bit as the creeping Charlie is sent packing. It also gives your home that all important curb appeal so when the time comes to sell your home you already have a lovely landscape to show it off.
Can curbing be lighted?
Lighting in your landscaping not only improves its look by night but it also reduces your chance of theft. LED lighting can be tailored to follow the curve and flow of your concrete curbing to create a professional and modern look to your yard. It’s a lovely highlight for spring flowering trees and adds a depth and serenity to a snowy evening.
