- What questions should a customer ask before hiring a professional in your trade?
Q: How long are the concrete curbing pieces and where do I buy them?
A: They are not pieces or sections. The breaks you see approximately every 3 feet are expansion/control joints. The curbing is installed on each job site.
Q: Is this landscape curbing a new product and does it last?
A: It's not a new product, it's been around since the early 80's. It's very durable and made to last.
Q: How deep do you dig and how deep is the footing?
A: We dig about 2 ½ inches deep by 10 inches wide. This can be done without disturbing your existing landscape beds. There is no footer as the curb is concrete and is it's own footing.
Q: What about frost and ground movement?
A: The benefit of our concrete curbing is that it is a continuous piece of concrete. Individual blocks or bricks will shift over time and in the winter. Our curb is fibermesh reinforced which is designed to take the place of rebar or steel and adds strength to the curb. We place control/expansion joints every 3 feet and are cut about 40% into the curb. This is designed to control the cracking of the curb during shifting periods and colder months. If the curb should crack, it should crack in the expansion joint and not be noticeable.
Q: Is the color painted or stained on the curb?
A: All of the concrete curbing colors are iron oxide pigments that are mixed into the concrete during the mixing process. The color will not flake off or disappear over time. You may experience a little fading, but this is normal in any outdoor color application. A sealer can aid in the lifetime of the color. We recommend sealing every year.
Q: What kind of base is placed under the curb?
A: We make sure the base under the curb is compacted and level. Sometimes we will put a small layer of sand under the curb to ensure it is level. If the curb should settle a little, the expansion joints should control the cracking.
Q: Will the curbing crack?
A: We experience very little cracking with our concrete curbing; however, concrete will crack. We take every precaution to limit the cracking and try to control it with expansion joints.
Q: Are you limited to a design layout, such as with timbers?
A: Concrete curbing is ideal for most any terrain. A small concrete extruding machine is very easily maneuvered, thereby providing the design flexibility needed for your specific lawn type. It curves, circles or extrudes straight lines to allow you any design. We encourage the homeowner to see the awe of the process. It is definitely a sight to see, from before to after transformation within a few hours is amazing!
Q: How effective is concrete curb in keeping out grass?
A: Extruded concrete curbing has a proven track record at preventing sod from entering your landscape beds. Your constant (losing) fight to keep sod out of your flower beds ended with this invention. You also do not have weeds growing in between this edging since it is all one continuous piece, nor can the sod grow under it if it is prepared correctly. We offer several different curbing molds (shapes) to choose from. The most common is “slant” & “mower” style. With our machine, both molds have a minimum height of 4 inches in back and 2 inches in front. The curb is actually 6 inches wide. Our molds are designed high enough to keep sod from growing through it, and also high enough on the back to retain your bed covering, such as mulch. As long as your area is prepared properly and your grass clippings do not go into your flower bed, you will not have creeping sod in your flower bed area any longer!
Q: Does this process damage my lawn or flowerbeds, and what can I do to prepare for the installation?
A: There will not be any damage to your landscape! In fact, we recommend your sod, flowerbeds and sprinkler systems be installed prior to our arrival. Once you approve the design of your flower bed, we sod cut the design with a 10 inch sod cutter so you will have that beautiful smooth flowing curb. Not only does that remove the sod for placement of the curb, but also gives you the opportunity to see the flow of the bed area prior to the installation of the curb. In other words, it still isn’t too late to change your mind on the flow.
Q: Can children or pets damage the curb?
A: The concrete curb is very vulnerable during the first 24 to 48 hours of installation. It is imperative to keep guests, children and pets away from the curb for the first few days. In addition, many homeowners have irrigation systems which need to be turned off the day before our arrival and not turned back on until two days after installation. If the curb is damaged from any type of force, we can fix the curb; however, there will be an additional fee for this service.
After the first few days, the curb is strong enough that animals and children cannot hurt the curb if they step on it. It is OK to rake your bed covering back into place a few days after installation, just make sure the curb does not take a direct hit from any tools. It is best to wait a few weeks before you begin any major replanting or changes to your bed area. Keep in mind, do not allow anyone to dig underneath the curb, or run over the curb with a vehicle. Your curb is only as good as it foundation, and it is not designed to be run over by a vehicle.
Q: Sounds good, but can anyone truly afford this?
A: Compared to the “do it yourself” blocks that you can purchase and install yourself, our prices are very comparable and it is installed professionally.

I had Olympic Lawn and Landscape install concrete/landscape curbing for me on two different occasions. I was very satisfied both times--the curbing looks great. They also have taken care of my lawn care for the past 3 years. Their crew is very professional and respectful. I recommend this company at every opportunity. You can't go wrong.- Houck
