Mowers Edge Curbing?


I understand that they have companies that come out and make custom mowers edge concrete curbing, but does anyone sell this as pavers or segmental blocks? For instance, straight or 45 degree curves as options?

Its concrete landscape extruded curbing to put around beds/trees/misc as an edging that is shaped like a stretched horizontal S shape.

Its edging! THe thought is that the lower portion of the ridge will be low enough that you can ride the lawnmower wheel on it and then you wont have to weed whip, at the same time the raised portion will be high enough to support the materials in the bed(mulch/rock/misc). This means the lower portion wont be at grass top level, it will sit lower.

Yea, I know its edging. Do, it keeps you from having to use an edger or weed whacker? I guess I'm not seeing how an edge can do that. I would still think you would need to get out the weed whacker.

If your using it against grass, the lower ridge of the paver would sit flush with the earth(meaning it would sit at the same height as where your tires would sit be there no edging). So, as long and you keep the outside tire of the lawnmower on the lower lip, it just like the tires on the ground.

Home depot, Lowes, and menards done carry them. I got estimates all at $4-5/ linear foot to have it contracted, LOL, yeah right.

Well, I have 30 bags of concrete mix left over from another project so Im going to make forms and poor the curbing myself. I will post pics after the weekend.

Were you asking me? Ummm...if so, it still looks like new, no problems. Why would you think it would be crumbled?

Yes, it is terrible for a contractor to require such a payment. I did it for 1/10 the price, and get comments everyday. Have done a few side jobs for the neighbors as well after I told them the cost(no, I dont make money off my neighbors, materials cost only). All are pleased.

Sorry, havent been on the website in a while. The curbing still looks great. I plan to add some more around the house. Cant beat the $20 price tage on it!

I will attempt to take some tonight and post them. Curbing held up better than my bushes, thats for sure
