WARRANTY & CARE
Concrete landscape edging is an attractive, durable product that will last for many years. Please follow the guidelines below for
- Keep pets, children and objects away from the curb for at least 24 hours. It will be "hard" to the touch at this point, but still needs
several days to fully set up.
- Sod laying, sprinkler work and landscape work can be started 48-72 hours after installation; however, caution must be taken as
shovels, picks and wheelbarrows can damage the curb for several more days while it is still curing. A full cure requires at least
- If you have a landscape contractor working for you, caution him about protecting the curb from damage. If wheelbarrows are used
for hauling rock over the curb, put a mound of dirt over it (at least 6" deep) or build a ramp over the curb to keep the weight from
cracking or damaging it. NEVER allow a tractor or truck to run over the curb.
- If it begins to rain within 6 hours after we leave the job, try to cover the curb with plastic. Make sure sprinkler systems do NOT
come on for at least 48 hours. Irrigation, back wash from pools, condensate lines or rain can damage the curb during the first
- Efflorescence (white powder substance) can appear on occasion and does not look good on curbing. It is generated from water
sprinkling systems and can also appear after a rainstorm. The intensity of the efflorescence varies depending upon the type
(hardness) of water and volume of water that gets on the curb. Check your sprinkler heads while the system is on and try to adjust
them to minimize the amount of water spraying directly on the curb. If you have just planted sod and are watering frequently,
efflorescence may appear more readily. Be patient, wait for your lawn to get established and clean the curb after it dries. A solution
of 50/50 vinegar and water with a light brushing will remove the efflorescence. You may have to do this a few times; eventually, the
efflorescence should go away.
- If curbing is damaged we will come back and make necessary repairs; however, there is a minimum charge for this service.
Concrete curbing, like any other type of concrete CAN and WILL crack. We try to control the cracking with expansion joints. Ideally,
that is where the concrete will crack, as that is the weakest point in the concrete. We experience very little cracking outside of the
expansion joints, but it does happen. We can come back and repair the cracks, but keep in mind that it is extremely hard to match
the original color and sometimes a small crack looks much better and less noticeable than a patch that is “off color.”
- Damage to sprinkler lines, telephone wires, cable television or other buried items by our equipment or personnel is not our
responsibility. We will make every effort to avoid these areas.
- Bennett’s Custom Curb provides a one-year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship. It will be replaced at no
charge if the defect is caused by the materials we use or the way it was installed by our workmen.
