)-- While it’s tempting to purchase the cheap, plastic edging coiled up on many home improvement store shelves, concrete curbing offers a much better value. Not only does concrete curbing boast many benefits for your yard, but it also enhances the appearance of the lawn. Concrete is poured, shaped and colored to match your home’s exterior and placed in a creative edging pattern to accentuate a landscaped area.
“Custom curbing is the latest landscaping trend on the market. It allows us to offer customers a long-lasting product that looks great and really emphasizes the lawn,” said Tim Brown, owner of OlympicLawn.net
Concrete curbing is made of poured concrete and can be shaped, patterned and colored to match the home’s exterior. Rather than having to purchase pre-made stones or pavers, custom curbing allows the homeowners to choose the exact shape and design of their landscape edging, and even have it professionally installed.
Benefits of Landscape Edging
There are many benefits of using landscape edging around your flowerbeds, trees and other landscaped areas. Landscape edging helps keep the weeds out of your beds. This not only saves you time from weeding, but it also helps prevent any back injuries. Edging your landscaped areas will keep your soil moist. Using stone edging will help the soil retain moisture and grow healthier plants.
Using Concrete Curbing as Landscape Edging
Concrete curbing not only looks great, but it’s a sturdy material. Foot traffic, animals and harsh climates can all take a negative toll on cheap landscape edging. By using custom concrete, your landscape edging will last longer and look nicer.
“There is nothing that compares to concrete curbing when it comes to choosing your landscape edging material. It looks great, has several benefits for the plants and soil in the landscaped beds, and will last for many, many years,” said Brown.
