anyone doing concrete landscape curbing for customers? i m in Pa. and keep hearing about this.
quess nobody is doing this or has heard of this???
There are some guys doing it around me but I think it's tacky and just a trend that will soon fade.
I have been doing it for a couple of years in Downingtown, Pa area. It been very slow the concept hasen't caught on.
but we do all types of curbing we can. they want it, we'll lay it.
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.
thanks for the responses, something to think about
