    There are some guys doing it around me but I think it's tacky and just a trend that will soon fade.

    curbing is huge up here. however, i dont know a single person that ADDS it to their services and makes money. we have two guys locally that only do curbing and are booked weeks in advanced. another local landscape company, a rather large one, added curbing, failed miserably, then went back to the specialists. i thinks its too much to just add on to services. its way more precise ( i.e. mixing right, troweling, coloring) then people realize.

    Personally, I HATE the concrete curbing.

    There's a fair amount of it down here, and I think that it's just tacky and distracts the eye from the garden and home...

    I wouldn't get in to it even if there were big $$$ to be made, but that's just me...

    I do not miss curbing at all but it does have it's place in some designs. I only use natural stone edging now, but that's do to me curbing for 3 years. It's not terribly hard work but it's not for everyone.
