Does anyone install continuous concrete curbing? If so post some pics of equipment and jobs. Just curious I have a Tygar setup myself and do not know many landscapers in my area getting into this. Thanks

Well I am a little over a year in with some smaller jobs here and there, nothing steady. This is just an addition to my landscaping and all is part time. Was just wondering what else was out there and near my area. I am new to lawnsite and figured i would try to spark the curbing up a bit.

I bought a used set up last year for one job I got. It's kind of an easy fit into the landscaping biz. I've got 3 jobs ready but with all the rain we've had can't do anything yet. Do you use tygar color or are you buying elsewhere? I'm experimenting with glass and other materials for some different looks

I use only tygar color, stamps, agents, etc. Just didnt find other products in this area i like and was as easy to acquire and use. I also want to get into the exposed aggragates rock, glass, etc. I have also made some of my own stamps. I think it will pick up, this year is suposed to be a good one and i have already gave numerous bids with one job completed. I will try to post some pics.

I like the exposed agg look and have people asking about trying to match walks porches etc. I run cable and fiber. What add mixture do you use? Do you use curb juice? I ran about 7000 ft last
year. I'd like to do 10k this year but I have a job that will take most of June and July and not many people wanna wait till august. Where you located? Can't see
Profile on phone. I'm crusing LS waiting for my Pest/Fert certification class to start.

No I use H & C stain from sherwin Williams. Works Great. I currently do not offer the agg but would like to get into it. The curb Juice is something i want to try but have been doin fine without it. Thanks

I used the Assurance marketed by Curb Depot but honestly it was hard to tell the difference. I am going to try curb juice this year and also dish soap.
