How Much Does Landscape Curbing Cost?
Last Updated: January 19, 2022
Landscape curbing gives a unique look to your yard by enhancing edges and borders around gardens, trees, bushes, and walkways. Most landscape edging is made from concrete curbing. However, there is also asphalt, vinyl, and brick curbing. If you plan on spending money on landscaping then you should set aside some money for landscape curbing. It will make your house stand out from the rest on the block, and increases eye appeal tremendously. Curbing will never rot or rust and, if installed properly, it will never move or shift. It is extremely cost-effective to install and can actually make you money on the resale of your house.
Landscape Curbing Costs #
The most popular material used to date in landscape curbing is concrete, mostly for its cost-effectiveness. A typical concrete curb installation will cost approximately $5 per linear foot. Extra site preparation, custom curb shape design, and color may make the price more expensive; closer to $10 per foot. Asphalt curbs are just slightly more expensive, coming in at around $6 to $7 per linear foot. Other types of landscaping curbings are usually used in special circumstances and are typically more expensive to install.
Installation can sometimes take only a few hours for a typical house (around 180-300 feet of edging). You don't have to worry about being inconvenienced with construction crews for days at a time. Concrete edging is usually mixed on-site so you don't have to worry about a large concrete truck digging up your lawn for installation.
