Concrete CurbingFor those of you planning to put your home on the market, easy exterior upgrades often help to improve your presence in the real estate realm. If you’re content to settle into your home, curb appeal can usually provide additional equity and enrich the investment you made when you bought your house. In this entry, we at All About Curb will address how even a simple finishing touch or two can bring admiration or potential buyers right to your front door.

Eye of the Beholder

The way your property appears from the street can have a significant impact on sale value, intrinsic equity, and even neighborhood property value ranges. That’s why curb appeal is so vital. Also if you want to affect a rustic and slightly unkempt charm with your landscape design, simple finishing touches can make all the difference. Unplanned and natural should not be synonymous with unkempt.

Concrete landscape curbs, patios, and pathways add just the right amount of structure to relaxed garden plots. But they can also be tinted and printed in some ways to accord with your style, whether your exterior space is modern or classical in structure. The only limit to stylish concrete tailored to your property is your imagination.

Print or Tint

Colored CurbingIn the past, you may have experimented with metal and masonry borders. While these materials have charm and function, there are some drawbacks to using them. Metal edging is quite handsome, but over time, it rusts or becomes misshapen. If it is painted to delay inevitable rust formation, this pain can often chip from prolonged exposure to the elements.

Masonry and stone edging and pathways are charming and often the first choice for many DIY home improvement projects. While it’s true that you can buy individual units and install them yourself, this plan has drawbacks. It’s important to remember that these are structural elements and proper planning and execution cannot be overlooked.

The benefits of our uniquely mixed concrete are several. If you desire a rustic fieldstone appearance, we can achieve this with our unique stamps without the uncertain results that come with laying the stone yourself. We’ll even tint the concrete to the proper shade, thus completing the look. But we can also add colors that provide a finishing touch to a modern design. Working with our team of experienced designers, you have almost unlimited options for how you envision your landscape.
