Concrete landscape edging is an attractive, durable product that will last for many years. Please follow the guidelines below for best results.

  • Keep pets, children and objects away from the curb for at least 24 hours. It will be “hard” to the touch at this point, but still needs several days to fully set up.
  • Sod laying, sprinkler work and landscape work can be started 48-72 hours after installation; however, caution must be taken as shovels, picks and wheelbarrows can damage the curb for several more days while it is still curing. A full cure requires at least 28 days.
  • If you have a landscape contractor working for you, caution him about protecting the curb from damage. If wheelbarrows are used for hauling rock over the curb, put a mound of dirt over it (at least 6″ deep) or build a ramp over the curb to keep the weight from cracking or damaging it. NEVER allow a tractor or truck to run over the curb.
  • Make sure sprinkler systems do NOT come on for at least 24-48 hours. Irrigation, back wash from pools, condensate lines or rain can damage the curb during the first 24-48 hours.
  • If curbing is damaged we will come back and make necessary repairs; however, there is a minimum charge for this service. Concrete curbing, like any other type of concrete CAN and WILL crack. We try to control the cracking with expansion joints. Ideally, that is where the concrete will crack, as that is the weakest point in the concrete. We experience very little cracking outside of the expansion joints, but it does happen. We can come back and repair the cracks, but keep in mind that it is extremely hard to match the original color and sometimes a small crack looks much better and less noticeable than a patch that is “off color.”
  • Damage to sprinkler lines, telephone wires, cable television or other buried items by our equipment or personnel is not our responsibility. We will make every effort to avoid these areas.
  • Quality Curb Inc. provides a one-year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship. It will be replaced at no charge if the defect is caused by the materials we use or the way it was installed by our workmen.
