4. Concrete Curb will match lawn elevation…..creating easy mowing.

• Every inch of the trench is groomed by hand before curb is extruded.
• Eliminates trimming and weeding time.
• Keep grass and weeds out of beds.
5. 3500 psi mix used.
• Reinforced with polypropylene fibermesh.
• Control joints scored every 2 feet apart.
• Engineered to withstand large riding mowers.
• Steel cable used to increase strength and reduce separation.
6. Curbmate Cobra gas curb machine used…..Produces greater compaction resulting in a stronger curb. This larger, quicker machine needs an experienced operator for optimum results. The decorative curb machines are all manually driven. Experience is required to give the professional results you deserve.
7. We are extremely cautious and respectful of homeowner’s yard.
* Concrete is mixed in the street and wheel barrowed to curb machine.

10. Curb is extruded extremely close to the lawn side of the trench.
