    Double check to see if there are tire marks. Good point brought up in an earlier reply.

    Tht craps starts to deteriorate after about 10yrs. Every time I pik up an accnt with that stuff. I work my hardest to convince the customer to let me rip it out.

    That's right, and that's why I suggest bricks set in mortar over any other type of curbing/edging.

    At least with the bricks, the cracks don't show, and as the mortar deteriorates it will at least keep a decent appearance compared to curb edging that looks like crap to begin with.

    Or better yet over a 10yr span it sinks below the grade of the beds/turf. I have a slight hatred for the crap. A nice deep cut edge looks way better.
