Frequently Asked Questions
Although Curbing is not new, the method, style of the curb, and look are exciting and new. We use only the best equipment to give you the best quality and look for your Landscape. As far as it lasting over a long time frame, it mainly depends on the installer and how well the customer takes care of it! Accent Curb Appeal uses top-of-the-line products to ensure long-lasting curbs. We even go that extra mile and use a special additive and sealants to ensure the clearest & consistent color. We are so confident you will love the installed curb, at Accent Curb Appeal that we give you a “one year warranty” on materials and workmanship.
Concrete curbing is ideal for the Okanagan terrain. A small concrete extruding machine is very easily maneuvered, thereby providing the design flexibility needed for your specific lawn type. It curves, circles, or extrudes straight lines to allow you any design your heart desires. We require the homeowner to be home during installation to ensure you are happy with the flow of the design. In addition, we encourage the homeowner to stay outside to see the awe of the process. It is definitely a sight to see, from before to after transformation within a few hours is amazing!
Continuous Concrete Curbing prevents sod from entering your flower bed. Your constant (losing) fight to keep sod out of your flower beds ended with this invention. You also do not have weeds growing in-between this edging since it is one continuous piece, nor can the sod grow under it if it is prepared correctly. There are a few different molds (shapes) to choose from. The most common is the “slant” & “mower” style. With our machine, both molds have a minimum of 4” height in the back and 2” on the front. The curb is actually 6” wide. Our molds are designed high enough to keep sod from growing through it, and also high enough on the back to retain your bed covering, such as mulch. Our machine even has the ability to adjust higher for the mountain areas where you may need a little more height. As long as your area is prepared properly and your grass clippings do not go into your flower bed, you will not have creeping sod in your bed area any longer!
There will not be any damage to your landscape! In fact, we recommend your sod, flowerbeds, and sprinkler systems are installed prior to our arrival. Once you approve the design of your flower bed, we sod cut the design with a 10” sod cutter so you will have that beautiful smooth flowing curb. Not only does that remove the sod for placement of the curb, but also gives you the opportunity to see the flow of the bed area prior to the installation of the curb. In other words, it still isn’t too late to change your mind on the flow. We want you to be 100% ecstatic with the results of your new Accent Curb Appeal landscape curbing.
If you haven’t already, check out to see our installation process. In preparation, the day prior to our arrival, Pop up all of your sprinkler heads and have them all marked so we do not trap them under the cement. Afterward, turn off your sprinkler system and leave it off for at least two days after installation. If you have plants, sprinkler heads, or lighting in the path of where the curb is to be placed, make sure they have been moved at least two feet from where we will be sod cutting and placing the curb. Please make sure this is done at least the day prior to our arrival. Last, but most importantly… Inform Children, Family, Neighbours, and Neighbours’ Pets that you are having “WET Decorative Concrete Curb Installed” and to stay away from your curb for a minimum of two days!!!!! If damage does occur after our departure, we must charge a fee to come back and repair the damaged curb. This is noted on your Care and Warranty.
The concrete curb is very vulnerable during the first twenty-four to forty-eight hours of installation. It is imperative to keep guests, children, and pets away from the curb for the first few days, otherwise, they can and will crush your curb. In addition, many homeowners have irrigation systems that need to be turned off the day before our arrival and not turned back on until two days after installation. If the curb is damaged from any type of force we can fix the curb, however, there will be an additional fee for this service. In addition, you will have a noticeable color difference where the curb is repaired. After the first few days, Accent Curb Appeal’s curb is pretty strong. It is strong enough at that point that animals and children cannot hurt the curb if they step on it. It is OK to rake your bed covering back into place a few days after installation, just make sure the curb does not take a direct hit from any tools. It is best to wait a few weeks before you begin any major replanting or changes to your bed area. Keep in mind, do not allow anyone to dig underneath the curb, or run over the curb with a vehicle. Your curb is only as good as its foundation, and it is not designed to be run over by a vehicle.
