    I get the junk mail brochures all the time in the mail, but I never really thought it was too big in the north east.

    From what I've seen its pretty popular in the Carolina's, but most Florida.

    Correct me if I'm wrong??

    None of the landscaping companies around here use them. However, there are a few companies that do only that. 2 man operations that do the whole project in a few hours (or so I'm told).

    I've never been wild about the look, so I haven't looked any further than that.

    i have seen things like them here but is only used on top
    of concrete , or blactop for parking lot curb. also noticed
    one company put rebar in it.

    never seen it used for landscape.must be because ground

    There are a few companies here in central Il. that are doing it. Seen several in condo communities. Some don't look too bad, others are hideous! Better be sure you won't want to change your flower bed or you'll have to get out the sledge hammer and pay em' to redo it.

    I've bought one several years ago. I've used it on a couple of jobs. Does a decent job and looks fine. If you have any questions just let me know...

    Do you do the curbing along with the landscaping biz or do you just do curbing?
