Prep Work:Existing Lawn: Any existing edging is removed, and 12 inch wide trench 1 ½ – 2 inches deep is created with a sod cutter. The sod is removed, and the trench is prepared for the edging to be installed.
New construction (or areas clear of vegetation): A 12 inches wide trench 1 – 2 inches deep is created by shovel or sod cutter and prepared for the edging to be installed.
Mixing: Our Spec-Mix of Portland cement, washed mortar sand, air entrainment solution, and reinforcing polypropylene fiber creates a strong, durable “winterized” concrete product.
Iron-oxide color dye is added to the concrete in the mixing process for color jobs. This insures integrated, long-lasting color.
Installation: Custom built machines, extrude concrete thru mold-heads into a raw formed curb. Then experienced trowelers compact, straighten, and cream the surface to a desirable finish.
Clean-Up, Billing & Final Inspection: We clean all our job sites and leave them as we found them with the exception of your new concrete edge! The edging is measured and billed at the appropriate rate in relation to amount and style of edging, and the bill is presented upon completion of work. A final inspection of the job will be done with customer and all aftercare requirements, including back-fill and sealing instructions are thoroughly explained before our departure from the job site.
