What's Concrete Curbing?

If you're like other business owners in the United States, you use landscaping plants to add value and beauty to your property. However, some individuals can trample through your plants and destroy them. If you need to replace your plants or rebuild your landscape regularly, it can affect you financially over time. Concrete curbing eliminates the stress you may experience every time someone damages your landscape.

Concrete curbing, also known as landscaping curbing, requires contractors to install a concrete barrier around vulnerable structures, such as your plants. The shape of the barrier generally depends on the shape of the structure it needs to protect. For example, a contractor may place circular concrete curbing around a large water fountain or tall tree. A contractor may install irregular-shaped curbing around a small below-ground fish pond. 

Concrete curbing can help deter people from entering your landscape. All you need to do is reach out to a commercial concrete contractor for assistance.

How Do You Install Curbing Around Your Landscape?

A commercial concrete contractor will need to evaluate your landscape before they install curbing around it. A contractor needs to choose or help you choose a curbing that will protect your landscaping without overwhelming or overpowering it. For example, the barrier must be high enough to deter trespassers from entering your landscape but low enough to allow visitors to comfortably view the plants inside it.

A contractor may also need to remove obstructions from around your landscape before they install the barrier. Obstructions, such as tree roots and weeds, can prevent the barrier from performing well after installation. A contractor may use special tools to remove the obstructions from your landscape. The tools will safely remove the obstructions without damaging your plants further.  

A concrete contractor may also place drainage pipes in the landscape prior to curbing it. The drainage pipes prevent water from backing up behind the barrier during the year. Moisture can break down concrete without the right precautions. A contractor can explain how drainage systems work when they visit your business.
