Places in Your Landscape That Can Benefit from Curbing

Blog

Curbing refers to decorative borders that paving contractors can place on your property. There are many benefits to your landscape in using curbing, such as helping to define certain areas or protect against weed growth. Here are some areas of your yard that can benefit from curbing.

Trees

Your trees can benefit from curbing around their trunks. Not only is the effect appealing, but curbing protects your trees against lawn mower blades and weed whackers and allows for more effective watering.

Gardens

Gardens that are large tend to blend into your grass, giving them a wild look that is hard to enjoy. Curbing helps tame your garden and give it boundaries so the eye is drawn to the natural beauty you have created rather than the monstrous blooms overtaking your yard. Curbing around your front porch blooms has the same effect and allows your plants to shine in their own glory without looking out of place.

Pathways

If you have a dirt pathway or even a concrete sidewalk leading to your home or garden, curbing is beneficial in these areas as well. Curbing takes a simple path and turns it into a more professional design that helps break up the monotony of a large yard. Decorative curbing makes a walking path to your front door more charming and inviting. Your paving contractor can help you choose what kind of curbing will work best for pathways.

Driveways

Your concrete driveway can be given a modern makeover by the simple addition of curbing. Curbing can help existing brick pavers along your driveway remain in place and create a decorative driveway that will last for many years.

Property borders

If you don't have a fenced yard, your yard may blend in with your neighbors' without any kind of definition. Curbing around the edges of your property helps create a more streamlined property line that you can enjoy. You can place curbing along your side of a public sidewalk as well to help people passing by recognize when they are venturing too close to your grass.

Whether you want curbing to protect your trees or to help border your property, there are many benefits to this landscaping technique. You can talk to a paving contractor to see what kind of curbing will work best for your needs. With the right curbing in place your landscape can look modern, clean, defined, and beautiful.
