You’ve just added the finishing touches on your landscaping and your yard is looking just the way you like, but…something is still missing. You want something that will really make your home stand out from the neighbors’, but you’re not sure what to do. Well here’s a novel idea: custom curbing!
Custom curbing is an affordable alternative to traditional stone or brick edging, and we can get them in any height, length, color and texture imaginable. We’ll even work with you on design, whether it be simple straight lines of blocks or decorative swirls, to ensure that your curb is as unique as you are! For homeowners who want their house to have curb appeal without spending too much money, custom curbing is the perfect solution.
Types of Landscape Curbing
When it comes to landscape edging, there are several options to consider. It’s important to do your research on some of the common curbing types so you can decide on the best one for your landscaping needs. In this article, we discuss 5 types of edging. Let’s get started!
Brick edging is among the more popular curbing options as it provides a nice, clean divider between the grass and flower beds. With this option, there are several color choices so you can match it with the overall look and feel of your property. When purchasing brick pallets for edging, be sure to consider whether you plan to install them horizontally or vertically to ensure you get the needed amount for the job.
Stone is an aesthetically appealing curbing option and allows for great flexibility in design and style. You can mix and match different stone colors with each other and choose between fabricated or natural stone. Stone edging can be placed any way you prefer – either one after the other or in a curved style, whether you want it to look more organized or more unique – whatever floats your boat.
Plastic edging is another popular option because of its cost-effectiveness and ease of installation. No digging is required as the plastic is secured with spikes. While this option is cheaper and easier to set up, it is not the most durable option out there. It can easily be uplifted from the ground, eliminating the barrier between your grass and flower beds.
Rubber edging is a nice option as it is made from recycled material and comes in different designs. You can choose from scalloped, raised, or flat designs and from a variety of colors, using between black, green, brown, or red. Another pro to this option is that it allows you to easily mow right up against the edge without any damage coming to either your mower or the edging itself.
Last but certainly not least, there’s concrete curbing. This is a sturdy, durable choice as it is not easily damaged by daily wear and tear or lawn mower bumps. It is also relatively easy to install. This material gives a clean, finished look and keeps flower beds organized and nicely separated from the grass. There are also a variety of colors to choose from with this option.
