THAT SHOULD SAY CONCRETE... MODS? HELP? ha

This is what my wife and I are planning to do around our home, trees and landscape. It looks so clean, neat, and we can get any color we like. Ours will match our siding (sandstone) and contrast with a nice dark mulch.

Are you going DIY?


Haven't done it but anything has to better than that green metal or black PVC edging.

DIY? No... hired out. I dont want to cut all that sod, and I like the warranty that THEY provide. It is quite reasonable...

I don't blame you there one bit. I had a couple hundred square feet of patio laid, stamped, and stained a couple of years back for less then doing the flagstone myself would have cost. Money well spent in my book.

What is a per foot price looking like here? $5? $10?

Wow that is slick. I just finished killing off about 2,000 sq foot of a slope on the side of my yard and am ready to start putting in some landscaping, but the ****ing edging has been holding me up. The black plastic is cheap but sucks. Individual edging/retaining wall blocks look nice but expensive and a PITA to install. This concrete border would make mowing a breeze and looks great to boot.

I wonder if I could bribe them to make the 3 hour trip north of Indy

For our style and color, $7 per linear foot. We are also getting our downspouts routed UNDER the yard and will have gravity pop-ups to release the water away from the house and landscaping.

Do some looking, there are other companies that provide this service... and yeah, it is slick as snot. Seen a few houses with it and it is incredible how nice it looks, PLUS durable.

That's not a bad price at all. I have a few of those pop ups and they're, well, they're just awesome.
