Process

How To Care for Your New Concrete Curb

The process to install the decorative concrete is a multi-stage progression. We go over each inch of the curb from start to finish 20 times before it gets our final stamp of approval.
  1. The first meeting with the potential customer where we survey the yard and measure the footage for the estimate.

  2. Mark out the location of the curb, incorporating any changes requested by the customer.

  3. Remove any edging or lift low lying branches that may get in the way of the curbing process.

  4. Cut an outline of the curb bed with a sod cutter.

  5. Remove all the sod in the curb bed.

  6. Use a weed eater on the front edge of the curb bed to remove the excess grass so it won't interfere with our cleanup later.

  7. Our curb extruder (the machine that places the curb) puts down the basic shape of the curb in the curb bed and packs the concrete.

  8. Level, pack, and shape the just-laid concrete curb by hand, using trowels and custom tools.
    • This is one of the most important aspects of the job. Using skill, experience and a good eye, the skilled tradesmen will fine tune the concrete until it is exactly the right angle, depth and consistency, throughout the run.

  9. Pouring a wet skim coat, called a slurry coat. The slurry coat contains the base colour chosen by the customer.

  10. Trowel the slurry coat with a one-time pass to level and smooth the slurry.

  11. Padding the colour onto the concrete with an imprinter. The rubber imprint pad has a slate look to it and can add up to four colors to the top of the curb.

  12. Etching the pattern onto the concrete with a rubber mallet and one of six different stamp imprints.

  13. Insert expansion joint cuts every four or five feet.

  14. Cut away the excess slurry on the front and back of the curb.

  15. Clean the front edge of the curb bed so no concrete is present to prevent the grass from growing up to the face of the curb.

  16. Smooth and polish the face and back of the curb and remove any inconsistencies.

  17. Lightly blow off excess color and any leaves, dirt, etc., along the entire curb.

  18. Seal the coat in three passes to get back, top, and curb face fully sealed.
