The Concrete Curb process
Most jobs are completed in one day with no disturbance at all to your existing landscaping .
The process of laying down a curb is simple and fun to watch.
First, we will define a border line based on your design
choice. Once you are satisfied with the curbing line we then use a professional
sod cutter machine with carpet like cuts about 9” to 12” wide. The
sod removed in rolls is disposed properly or it can be used
somewhere else in the property at the owners request. Once the path is clear , cleaned,
compacted if needed, the curb machine is entered next. Extruding concrete professionaly, the compact
machine will lay the curb smoothly and clear of damage to your existing landscape.
Once a section of the curb is in place we will come behind it and hand trowel it to
a smooth finish. Slate texture, colors and stamps of different designs can be added to the curb
while it is in its plasticity stage. Finally , after the coloring and stamp process, we will
spray a cure and sealer compound to ensure protection and beauty to the finished curb for years to come.
We will clean up all debris related to our work and dispose it
properly as well . Please have in mind that concrete
will crack regardless . Time and different environmental factors play a roll on cracking concrete.
We , in order to avoid random cracking, cut a control joint every three feet.
This will control the cracking point if it were to happen at a given time. Control
joints are for the most part integrated to the curb design making it a functional part
of the curbing process.
