Concrete edging is a cost-effective way to spruce up the appearance of your landscaping. Whether you want to create a more formal or informal look, this type of edging can be shaped in many different ways. In this article, we will discuss three styles that are available:
- Style One – Mower Curb
- Style Two – Angle Curb
- Style Three – Dome Curb
Style 1 – Mower Curbs
Mower curbs offer functionality and aesthetic appeal. Their shape provides solid protection for plant and flower beds from the lawn mower. There is a lower edge and a high edge. The lower edge allows for easy mowing, while the higher edge blocks debris and weeds from wrecking your flower bed.
Let’s not forget about colors! Mower curbs come in a variety of colors, making them a great option for homeowners who want to match their curbing perfectly to their house. Some color options to choose from include, but are not limited to, brick red, sandstone brown, and concrete gray. Choose the color that matches your property!
Style 2 – Angle Mold
The angle mold, or slant mold, is a popular curbing style for residential properties as it is functional and has aesthetic appeal. This mold slants so that the higher edge is against the flower bed and the lower edge is against the grass. The high edge prevents weeds from entering the flower bed and damaging any delicate plants. The lower edge allows you to mow right up against the curbing to remove all weeds. This keeps your yard looking organized and clean!
The angle mold also comes in a variety of colors and can be stamped to suit your style. Some stamped textures include stone and brick.
Style 3 – Dome Mold
The dome curbing mold is another great option for those looking to add some flare and interest to their yard. It is rounded like a dome and comes in many colors with various types of textures. A beautifully stamped concrete dome mold can make your landscaping pop with the right color!
The shape of the dome mold offers an interesting, unique aspect to your landscaping. But, it is effective at retaining flower beds and protecting them from weeds and other debris. This style provides good protection from the mower as well.
These are just three popular curbing styles available to choose from. Each provides solid functionality with their own creative flare. If you need help choosing the right style for your property, reach out to Southern Maryland Landscape and Lawn Care today!
