Decorative Concrete Curb Edging FAQs
Is there going to be a cement truck and large equipment tearing up my lawn?
No. All of the concrete is mixed on-site in a small trailer. It is then wheeled to the extruding machine using wheel barrows with large turf tires. All equipment is very small and lightweight, so there is virtually no wear and tear on your lawn.
How long does the installation take?
The installation time varies from job to job based on footage and prep work involved. However, most jobs can be done in a matter of a few hours.
How much does concrete edging cost?
Since concrete edging is a continuous poured product, it is priced by the linear foot. Our cost is very comparable to the prices of other forms of installed edging. Each project is unique, and while we have a base starting point, the price can vary depending on factors such as prep, irrigation, stamp/style. Call today 605.213.0434 to have our experienced technicians make a property visit to provide an accurate analysis and price estimate.
What is included in the cost?
Edge Pros is unique in that our price per foot includes: removal of old edging (plastic, pavers, or timbers), ground preparation, color choice, installation, optional stamping, and sealer.
Is the color applied to the surface of the concrete and will it fade?
The coloring we use is mixed into every batch of concrete. If the edging should ever scratch or chip, it will not be noticeable because the colorant is throughout the edging. We also use a UV resistant sealer to eliminate fading. We recommend the edging be re-sealed every other year. Edge Pros offers re-application of sealer in our service package, or you can do this on your own by purchasing sealer at your local hardware store.
Does the edging sit on a footing?
Because the edging itself is concrete, it serves as its own footing. We use a sod cutter to form a trench about 2 inches deep and 9 inches wide where the edging is poured. Occasionally, we add a little sand to any low spots so the edging will be level.
How do you keep the edging from cracking?
Concrete edging is like any other type of concrete; it can and will crack. We alleviate most of the cracking by installing control joints every 2 feet. We also use fiberglass reinforcement and other additives to strengthen the concrete. We experience very little cracking in our product.
Do you offer any type of warranty?
Yes. Edge Pros offers a two-year workmanship warranty on all installed edging. If the edging should separate or shift due to workmanship error or natural causes, we will repair it at no charge.
