Benefits of kerbing
Kerbing is a landscaping technique that adds style and organization to your property. Used along driveway and parking lot edges, gardens, and property lawns the affordable method is a great way to add more depth to the look and feel of your business. Kerbing eliminates the need for regular maintenance to your landscaping, because it is designed to regulate growth, maintaining your designs by capturing them within your predefined edges, established by the kerbs. This saves business owners money and also creates a consistently pleasant sight for customers upon each visit.
Why Concrete is the Best Material for the Job
Kerbs are potentially made from, including concrete, asphalt, timber, metal, and stone many materials. Most selections are made entirely based upon preference but for some businesses, if the concern is durability and significantly less maintenance, concrete is your best option. This is because asphalt, timber, metal, and natural stone eventually breakdown. Asphalt does not perform well in severe weather, as both water often negatively affects it and sun exposure, which cause it to swell, sink, or crack. Timber decays and rots over time, due to the weather and also in the presence of wood-boring insects. Metal materials tend to corrode and rust in the presence of water, which causes them to quickly deteriorate as well. Meanwhile, natural stone is certainly more durable than the other materials; however, it is much more fragile than concrete so it's susceptible to cracking or chipping under significant pressure and weight.
Concrete is extremely durable because of its strength. Designers are able to easily manipulate the material to create stunning kerb designs that maintain the material's strength but also incorporate stylish flair that adds to the curb appeal of your commercial property. Concrete is also quickly installed and is typically more affordable than some of the other materials because it is so easy to mix. Painted finishes can be added to the final concrete kerbs to further add to the unique stylistic properties.
No matter the weather, your concrete kerbs will not crack or chip. Also, staining shouldn't be a problem unless oils or paints are somehow transferred onto the surface.
