Today, we were replacing curbs from some ‘other’ curbing company in St. Cloud. The unfortunate thing about it was that the owners didn’t know what to look for when it came to curbing. And, the ‘other’ company obviously installed their curbs before a rain-storm hit, so the curbing was badly pitted. They should have covered the curbs if a storm were pending, not just leave the job site.
However, the damaged and crumbled curbs were picked up by Curb Appeal Concrete Landscaping Borders and transported quickly to the landfill! After-which, new borders were installed – with color! I should have the complete pictures for this job tomorrow, which I will share with you.
Anyway, what I’m boiling down to is; do you know what to look for? Here is an example of what you definitely DON’T want with your borders.
This picture was actually taken in 2003 by someone that hired us. For the record, these are NOT our borders. Notice how uneven and wavy the top is? This is just “crap installation” here. Can you see the difference?
In this second picture, you see straight lines that are easy to mow around. For the record, these ARE our borders.
You want your borders to “frame” and complement your landscape – not distract from it. You don’t want “roller-coaster’ curbs – you want straight, smooth and level curbing. THAT’s how you frame your landscaping.
And, a big plus (know that the rainy season is upon us); concrete landscaping borders keeps the mulch in – and the grass out!
So; when investigating this avenue for your landscaping; think about the following:
- How long have they been in business?
- Can they provide customer names for references?
- Guarantee’s? Will they come back for repairs?
You wouldn’t believe how many companies fade in and fade out. We can proudly say that we’ve been doing Concrete Landscaping Borders in this area for 18 years. Shouldn’t you go with a successfully locally owned and operated company? This is the only business we have – full time! That’s us!
Homework: You as a homeowner should do due diligence to determine if the company you select will be able to perform the job to your satisfaction; are able to complete repairs if needed; have a solid foundation of customer service; and a fair price. Research this site to give you prices, curb styles, color options, and how to measure.
