The concrete landscape edging installation process is very simple with our curb machine systems from Lil' Bubba®!
First, the area where the concrete landscape edging will be installed has to be prepared. Ground preparation is very important in achieving a professional- looking stamped curb from your edging machine. A trench, two inches deep and nine inches wide, around the landscape edging beds is all that is necessary to accommodate the concrete curb machine. Ground preparation is completed by using shovels and trencher/bed edger.
Second, concrete is prepared in a mortar mixer with sand, cement, fiber, and water as the basic ingredients. The consistency of the mixture is very important - the mix must be very dry. Color additives can be added to the curb mixture to customize the beauty and match your home. After the mixture is ready, the concrete mix is shoveled into the Lil' Bubba® concrete landscape edging/curb machine and extruded into a professional continuous landscape border.
When the concrete landscape edging is extruded from the Lil' Bubba® curb machine, the surface of the landscape edging will have some imperfections. Using a specially formed hand trowel, the concrete curbing is quickly smoothed into a decorative concrete curbing masterpiece. After the decorative concrete curbing is laid down and smoothed, it can be stamped to create patterns using various stamping tools. There are many coloring and stamping techniques that can be done at this time. Control joints are then added to help prevent cracks every one and a half to two feet while the surface is still wet. These control joints can be hidden in the stamped curb pattern or tooled for a finished landscape edging look.
Since there is no form work, no landscape damage, and no elaborate set-up, clean-up is minimal. We don't leave any rubbish and we clean up the job site completely before leaving.
