Frequently Asked Questions

How long are the pieces and where can I get them?

This is not block work. Our Decorative Curbing is a continuous landscape border which is mixed and extruded on-site and in one "piece."

Will my Decorative Curbing crack?

Yes, all concrete will crack. Although we experience little cracking, we place expansion joints every 24- 30 inches which will not only control where cracking may occur, but will also keep potential cracks out of sight. These joints allow for shifting during the winter months while maintaining the integrity of your curb.

Will installation disturb my existing landscape?

Decorative Curb installation will be done with little to no damage to your lawn and landscape. No heavy equipment or machinery is needed for this process! A 10 inch sod cutter, curb extruder, and wheelbarrow are the primary equipment.

How long will installation take?

Most projects will be completed in 2-10 hours.

Can you do tree rings?

Decorative Curbing provides nearly limitless design possibilities! Since it is extruded on-site, we can form sweeping curves, straight lines, 90 degree corners, or even tree rings. If you have an idea, we can probably make it happen.

How long does the curb take to dry?

Your Decorative Curbing will be dry to the touch within 24 hours, however to fully cure it will require 28 days. During the first 2 days your curb is most vulnerable to damage by children, pets, or irrigation. We recommend keeping such potential threats away from it for this time period.

How do you paint the curb?

We don't. Your selected color is mixed directly into the concrete before the extrusion process. After extruding the concrete, we trowel it and stamp it to your requested design.

When can you install Decorative Curbing?

Due to the concrete, we will install the curbing as the weather and temperature permits! Most of our curbing is done between April and November, but as the daytime and overnight temperatures permit, we can do it if and when the weather cooperates! To be safe, we choose to install our curb when the temperature will not get below 36-40 degrees within the first couple days in order to assure its structural integrity and proper curing of the concrete.

I have a lot I'd like to get done, but can i afford it?

When compared to other options, even do it yourself projects, our product is quite affordable and professionally installed. We'd be happy to give you a phone estimate and discuss options for installing your Decorative Curb in different "phases" as you see fit.

Are you a franchise?

No! We are a private, locally owned and operated business from Bountiful, UT. We are happy to be serving our neighbors.
