Why Concrete Kerbing Is a Top Choice for Commercial Landscapes

Posted on: 2 October 2019


Like it or not, your commercial landscape speaks volumes about how you do business. Before people even walk through your door, they'll already have a general idea about what to expect. If you've put in the effort to make your landscape look beautiful and inviting, customers will be convinced you're committed to their satisfaction. If you don't give your landscape the attention it deserves, you might repel customers, thus missing out on business opportunities. 

Installing kerbing is an excellent way to demarcate landscape arrangements, such as lawns, driveways, and walkways, while improving the kerb appeal of your commercial property. There are various material options for commercial landscaping kerbs. Concrete is one of the most popular materials used for commercial kerbing because of the many incredible benefits it brings to the table.

Check out some of those benefits below.

Concrete Kerbs Last Long

Concrete's excellent strength and durability are key attributes that make the material ideal for use in kerbing installation. Concrete kerbs can survive daily exposure to the weather as well as the extremes of normal use, such as when someone hits the kerbing when driving on the driveway or parking their vehicle in the parking lot.

Concrete Kerbs Are Available in Different Shapes and Finishes

While plain concrete isn't known for its aesthetic qualities, concrete kerbs come in many different shapes and finishes that make for a beautiful addition to any commercial landscape. 

Some of the different designs that concrete kerbs come in include straight kerbs, slant kerbs, mower kerbs, block kerbs, dome kerbs and roll kerbs. Each design is crafted with specific purposes in mind.

Concrete kerbs also come in an array of decorative finishes, including dimpled finishes, coloured finish, stone finish and many more.

Concrete Kerbs Are a Great Option for the Environment

Concrete kerbs are beneficial to the ecosystem in a variety of ways. To start with, the raw materials that are used to make the kerbs (sand, aggregate and limestone) are abundantly available. This makes manufacturing of concrete kerbs sustainable. 

Secondly, concrete kerbs can last for many years to come. This means that it'll take a long time before they'll need to be replaced. This helps to reduce the need to use planet Earth's natural resources to make more concrete kerbs.

Thirdly, concrete kerbs never go to waste when they reach the end of their service life. They can be crushed for reuse as gravel or taken to a waste recycling facility that accepts it for reprocessing.

All these possibilities make concrete kerbing a fantastic choice for the environment.
