1. Your Vision
The process begins with you and your vision for your yard. Think of your dream yard and landscape design and give us a call! If you're unsure with the exact design you want, our years of service can help give you plenty of ideas!
2. Design Consultation
Start with a free design consultation by calling us as 320-424-0238 or by filling out an online estimate form.
3. Marking the Ground
We'll first mark the ground using spray paint or set a string line in the area where you want the curbing. Once the area is marked and the landowner is happy with the design we will remove any existing landscape border and cut our path.
4. Removing the Grass
Next, we use a special grass cutter to remove a 12' strip of grass where the concrete curbing will go. We roll the grass that has been cut so that it can be used by the homeowners, or removed from the property. After the grass has been removed, a path is left in which we will install the curbing.
5. Mixing the Concrete
The concrete is mixed to your specified color. We have a cement mixer on our trailer, which allows us to mix the concrete right on site.
6. Extruding the Concrete
Next the concrete mixture is shoveled into our curbing machine, which is fitted with the style of curb that you chose. Then the curbing machine extrudes a continuous piece of concrete curb in the pathway.
7. Troweled Smooth
The curbing is then troweled to a smooth finish. Before it hardens, expansion joints are cut and finished into the concrete every 30 - 36 inches to help prevent cracking.
8. Stamping the Concrete
If you wish to add a design to your curbing project then we will create it by stamping the concrete with a rubber roller.
The final step is easy. Just kick back, relax and enjoy your new beautiful yard and landscaping, compliments of Creative Curbing.
