3 Misconceptions About Concrete Edging

The Most Effective, Efficient, and Eye Catching improvement you can do for your landscape!

For years, you may have thought it was impossible to have a well-defined yard that shows your good taste, or asked yourself “how can I afford to do that”. Well after reading this article you may realize that your dreams are about to come true.

Misconception #1

Adding concrete borders to an existing landscape will make a mess and probably destroy your favorite bush or lawn that you worked so hard on. Or, you think that you can’t install edging after you have installed sprinkler systems, lighting, or fencing.

This is not so. In fact, there are minimal invasive techniques used to integrate concrete edging into your existing landscape. There is no digging for forms, only removing sod to a 1” – 2” depth. The extruder equipment is about ½ as wide as a lawnmower. No heavy equipment on your driveway.

When Creative Edge leaves, everything is back in its place as before. Plant life is undisturbed and prettier than ever with its new beautiful, creative, and defining concrete edging. Concrete edging provides the best accent possible on your landscape design.

Misconception #2

It takes a lot of time for preparation and installation.
Not true – We take the preparation out of the equation for you, from start to finish and give your yard a makeover that will last a lifetime.
All you have to do is pick up the phone to schedule an appointment! We provide you with a free written estimate that takes around a half-hour to prepare. The estimate is good for one year so you don’t have to feel rushed into making your decision or plans. You just show us your ideas (which can even be done via digital pictures and emails). Our estimators, with their years of experience, can quickly access your needs and create a professional and functional design to highlight your existing plants and hardscapes. We simply charge according to footage! The day before your scheduled installation, all you have to do is pick up after your pooch, mow the lawn, and mark your sprinkler heads.
With the custom mixing & installation system that only the “Original” Creative Edge has, and by using experienced craftsmen to install and trowel the edging, you can be assured it will be done right the first time. You’ll be amazed at how our efficient crew will transform your landscape in a matter of hours (we average about 100’ per hour). You’ll finally have that yard you’ve always dreamed of and admired in neighboring homes that Creative Edge has improved.

Once your creative concrete edging is in place and has cured at least 24 hours, it is durable (it can handle 3,000 psi after fully cured at 1 week), resistant to the elements, will stand up to your lawn mower or weed eater (you can even drive over it with your riding lawn mower and not damage it).

Misconception #3

Probably the most elusive piece of the puzzle is cost.
Most people are pleasantly surprised at the affordability of Concrete edging. It is not as much as you might think. For about the same price as you will pay for temporary products such as plastic yard edging, wood, or even new composite products, you can have permanent concrete landscaping borders that last a lifetime. It runs anywhere from $3.25 per foot up to $5.50 per foot for colored and stamped. We can even match your aggregate walkway or porch. Not only is it comparable, but imagine not having to do the work yourself. How much does that cost you in an aching back, time off work, or paying your neighbors kid to help you? Let us compare for you and you will see that your dreams are in sight.

Quality is number one, and on the job service second to none. Let your dreams become a reality. Don’t spend another dime on quick fixes when you could have the right product for the right price and enjoy a lifetime of beautiful concrete edging. Once you’ve experienced The Original Creative Edge and met our courteous and friendly staff, you will never want to go anywhere else for your future edging projects.
