Concrete borders are a demarcation installation that divides areas of your lawn from the rest. Concrete borders are usually desired for garden beds or protecting certain plants. They can help add dimension and texture to your otherwise flat lawn and can increase irrigation appropriately to certain plants and help avoid erosion.
Concrete borders are designed to enclose your gardens and allow for mulch and certain plants to be contained to one space. They help to separate the garden from the rest of your lawn and prevent erosion that may otherwise be the result of heavy rainfall or outdoor activities. Concrete borders are versatile and add value to your outdoor space, making it look clean and beautiful. Concrete borders are customizable and have the ability to curve, making them preferred over other types of borders that must be curved from their existing shape. Concrete borders easily add new dimension to your lawn’s trees, walkways, front patios, and garden beds.
To begin the installation of concrete borders, we start by measuring the desired area for the border. Concrete is then usually mixed on site and with the right proportions. We’re able to stain the concrete to your desired color, if needed, and we prepare the area in which it will be poured. The area around your garden or plants that will be bordered will be slightly trenched and sodded, preparing the soil for the concrete mixture. It is then poured onto a pre-set lining that is in your anticipated shape around your lawn. It is set to dry or stamped with designed if so desired. The process to install concrete borders does not usually take longer than a few days at most, so your projects can readily be achieved without excess mess or waiting time. You should always allow the concrete to dry completely before working in your garden bed, as concrete that has not dried completely is more prone to future damage, crumbling, or cracking.
As mentioned previously, concrete borders are requested for their flexibility to adjust to angles, unlike other gardening structures such as green metal or other materials that cannot easily bend on their own. Concrete borders are sturdy and durable, so they’re unlikely to if they’re set at angles or curves. Due to their flexibility, clients enjoy the options that concrete borders gives them, allowing them to custom create designs that fit their yard individually.
Concrete borders and decorative floors come in various designs and are versatile in terms of patterns, colors, and sizes. Concrete borders can easily be stained or stamped to match existing borders or other structures around the yard. If you have a color scheme you’d like to integrate, the concrete can easily be stained to achieve this look. Fortunately, staining and stamping the concrete is both safe and waterproof, so you don’t have to worry about the rain or snow ruining your concrete borders’ appearance. Pathway lights can also be integrated into the design of concrete borders.
