No, the only piece of heavy equipment we use is our truck and trailer to get us to the site. This remains on the street, back alley or driveway. Our other equipment is small and specifically designed to work on and around existing landscape without disturbing it.
The formula we use for our concrete borders has been used successfully in Alberta for over 20 years. We also cut in control joints similar to what is done in sidewalks and outdoor pads. However the product is concrete and this is Alberta, and concrete can and will crack. Reinforcing the mix greatly reduces this possibility. Properly placed control joints allow the concrete if it cracks, to crack at the joint, thereby not taking away from the beauty and functionality of the border.
Yes, our borders are 6" wide and will stop regular lawn grass from spreading into your garden area. It will not however stop the spreading of quack grass.
It’s durable, lasting more than 20 years. It blocks the intrusion of many weeds and grasses, reducing the need for weeding. It’s easy to mow and trim around. It adds an eye-catching, professional look to your property.
On a new yard the topsoil should be leveled to the final grade. On an existing yard no preparation is required. We look after everything from preparing the area to the installed border.

Yes, a rock or hammer dropped on the border can chip it. On natural colour concrete the chip will be in most cases barely noticeable. In the case of coloured and sealed borders the damage will be more noticeable, in which case a dab of sealer on the damaged area will fix the damage. This is one of the reasons why we use integral colouring through our entire border.
Our machine does a three foot radius comfortably and we can manually do a lot tighter turns. However there are a few things you should consider:
1- how big is the tree going to grow?
2- if it is an inside curve, will I be able to cut the grass easily with my mower? and
3- will the curve look good with my landscape?
A usual range is $11.25 to $21.00 per lineal foot, although the choice of profile, colour and stamp affect the cost. A site visit lets us see what needs to be done so we can give you an accurate quote.
