I concur with Dana. No need to make special consideration assuming the rest of the irrigation is designed/installed correctly with square spacing.

Those tall "soldier" blocks on your curve are a prime target for the snow plows. They need to be fortified better than I can see in the pic.

It is much stronger then it looks, there is a lot of concrete behind it, the stone is just inch higher then the concrete.
My neighbor’s curbs are much weaker and they have no problems,
On this street live town employs and lawyers, drivers know this so they are careful...

How often do you guys ever see a belgian-block curb done with the maximum use of blocks? (like a stack of bricks laid on its side)

Here is another side, this shovel means border. I plan to install 1800 Rain bird sprinklers with 180 degrees nozzles, along the curb and the border.

I wanted this way because the lawn (dirt behind it) is inch below top of the stones.
The town is coming with new black tap, so it will cover about 3 inches of the curb in front.
