    Which do you use? Concrete curbing is used on 95% of the driveways here.

    I like snap edge as well. The problem is that the competitors are saying: In 3-5 years the snap edge will not hold the brick in place anymore because the ground will heave. (The city is built virtually on a swamp, the new houses in the new subdivisions have sum pumps running spring to fall)

    What do I base my argument on. I have been saying that the concrete will crack and also using the price difference to my advantage.

    Any other suggestions.

    Pave Tech edging will not let you down! It is specifically made for light or heavy traffic depending on which product you choose. It may cost more than many others, but what does it cost for a return visit because the edging failed.

    What price do you pay for pavetech? I can get it for 1.04/ft and would like to know how that compares.

    Thanks
