How to Use Curb It Yourself 

This process is nearly identical to that of a professional installer. 

 

Step #1: Ground Prep

Clear the top growth to an inch or two of solid soil. The curb will ride on top of the ground. 

 

Step #2: Edging

Use a flat blade shovel to remove surface growth. The edge of the grass is a good way to control the edge of your curb. 

 

Step #3: Concrete

Create the concrete by mixing sand and Portland cement in a 4:1

ratio. 

 

Step #4: Just Add Water

 After the sand and cement are mixed, add water to the desired consistency. A mixer is not necessary (additional tips on Facebook). 

 

Step #5: Just Keep Trowel-ing

Press concrete into the trowel, advance the trowel, smooth, and repeat. 

 

 

Step #6: Enjoy Your New Curbs

Your wallet thinks it looks great, too.

Curbing by you for less 

Note that curb it yourself sits right on the ground.

Curbing by them for a lot more

This professionally installed curb also sits right on the ground. 

Note that this is also how curbing is installed in freezing climates.
