The final touch to a gorgeous landscaped garden is to add decorative curbing to it. Wondering what that is?

The graceful, continuous curl of the decorative curbing increases the attractiveness of the garden immeasurably.

Most gardens have flowerbeds and a driveway while others have many more landscaped areas like a rock garden or fountains. Edgings are needed for all these as grass or weeds grow indiscriminately, running their looks. And only regular trimming can keep the edges clean.

Traditionally, wood/bricks were used to provide edges. While natural materials like wood don’t last long, bricks, though it looks rustic and adds colour to the garden, also involves higher maintenance – it gets moved easily and weeds grow in the gaps.

Over times many alternatives have been developed. Plastic and metal have been the most popular ones. These are easy to install and look neat. But one disadvantage is that they easily come off in time. Curbing made of concrete has become widely popular in recent times because it is the most long-lasting and elegant solution for edging requiring very little maintenance.

The concrete border works as a root barrier, inhibiting growth of weeds or grass. Because of its weight, concrete landscape curbing, unlike plastic landscape edging, does not rise due to frost. All these benefits have made concrete curbing a popular choice while landscaping gardens.
