Concrete Edging Install & Prep
1. Layout & Planning:
Upon arrival on the scheduled day an experienced Creative Edge installer will plan your project with you, making sure everything is ready to go before we start the installation process. Any footage or style changes that affect price will be gone over with the customer before completion of work.
2. 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 inch wide trench 1 - 2 inches deep is created by shovel or sod cutter and prepared for the edging to be installed.
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.
Specialized machinery is used to build the concrete edge, and it is given the final touch by hand.
5. Clean-Up, Billing & Final Inspection:
We clean all our jobsites 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 backfill and sealing instructions are thoroughly explained before our departure from the jobsite.
3X5 Curb Style:
Used primarily as residential lawn edging, when a simple but functional barrier is desired. Low-profile and inconspicuous, provides a great accent to any yard. If you use a riding lawn mower or lawn tractor, this is the preferred product.
Used primarily for residential landscaping as a neutral border. Shows up less in the yard, and doesn't become overbearing to the landscape.
Used primarily for large landscape projects, with plenty of room between beds and sizable maintenance equipment.
Used primarily for residential landscaping for a neutral border between bedding materials.
Commonly used as a driveway border, and can be "tacked on" with epoxy and/or vertical steel dowels.
This new high profile edging is ideal for use with various finishes and colors, as so much of the curb is in view.
Used primarily as a commercial tack on (attached to existing asphalt) curb. Can also be used as a heavy barrier in residential driveways where lots of traffic is expected, or for water control on any substrate due to its size. Product can be doweled with steel vertically to add more strength.
