The Process

The Estimate

The curbing process starts with meeting with Ryan, the owner, for a free consultation to figure out what would look best in your yard. Correct measurements are taken to give the customer an accurate cost of the project. Spray paint is then used to trace the location the edging will be laid upon so the home owner can see the chosen layout for the new landscaping. Depending upon the amount of work involved in the project, most estimates take about 30 minutes. Ryan will go through color choices and patterns to best suit your property, ensuring the best look possible.

Upon Arrival

Prior to pouring the job, Ryan will meet with the customer one more time to go over the location of where the decorative concrete curbing will be poured, and make any adjustments due to customer preferences. Meanwhile, our trained employees will set up all the necessary equipment in preparation of starting the process. The heaviest piece of equipment that goes through your yard will be a wheel barrow, so there is no need to worry about lawn damage. We will need to hook up our hose to your home water supply so we can mix the concrete on-site properly.


We will follow the sprayed-out area where the landscape border will be installed with our bed edger. This is going to cut out the grass, making a path so the curb can be installed properly.

Mixing and Extruding of Cement

Once all marked areas are trenched and prepped, the mixing process begins. At this point we make our concrete blend, adding reinforcement fibers and color. The mix is dumped into a wheel barrow and taken to the curb machine where the cement will be extruded and finished to give it the final look. During this process, steel cable is placed through the center of the edging. Through the harsh frost and freeze cycles of Maine winters, this cable prevents the curb from separating and heaving, making our edging the strongest, longest lasting on the market.

Stamping and Control Joints

To give the decorative concrete edging the best possible look, a variety of stamps can be chosen to best suit the look of your house and landscape. All stamps are applied with a release agent to make the patterns stand out, and some natural variation. Stamps are rolled on, or hand pressed in, with tools to create your desired look. This takes place once the curb has been properly finished. Next we cut in expansion joints, about every 2 feet, to limit cracking.


Sealing is the final process of installing the decorative concrete edging. This is going to protect the edging from UV rays and help prevent the color from fading. We recommend resealing the edging every two years to keep it protected. This is a simple process and can be easily done by the homeowner, or customers can hire us to do it.

Available Edging Styles

Mower Style

This style is popular because it is installed to accommodate both a lawn mower wheel and at the same time retain gardening materials because of its higher back side. It also has great curb appeal because it sets off the landscaping with a picture-perfect frame type of look.

Slant Style

This is by far our most popular curb contour; the slant contour provides a large even surface that makes your pattern of choice the focal point. The low front edge reduces trimming while the taller back edge holds mulch and stone in the landscape bed.

Square Curb Style

This curbing is less commonly used; the square curb provides for a heavier border line.
