Mowers Edge ‘Picture Frame’ Look Adds Curb Appeal
A highlight of the Mowers Edge concrete border style is that it has a low, not easy to trip on entry point coupled with a high back which keeps mulch where it belongs. Its 4″ x 6″ size makes it an effective lawn/weed barrier. Mowers Edge has great ‘Curb Appeal.’ Its style can help your landscape design’s curb appeal stand out.
Form Over Function?
Mowers edge concrete curbing is a popular choice among residential and commercial projects. It is easy on the eye and makes landscape management a snap. The style is as it implies, an edging that is made for easy lawn mowing. Roll up and around the curbing without worry. Though this isn’t a perfect solution and some weed wacking is necessary for complete lawn care. If looking for a complete curbing style that can be colored, stamped and allows for ease of lawn care consider the tapered slant or 3 x 5 square. That being said, mower’s edge is a beautiful curbing style that looks great colored and creates a ‘picture frame’ look to the lawn.
Another thing to consider is that Mowers Edge concrete curbing cannot be stamped with the attractive patterns that are becoming so popular among homeowners who install concrete borders. So, when you are making your decisions about what type of concrete edging to install, make sure you check out all the options that we offer such as: The 3 x 5 Square, The Large Square, The Slant or the Tapered Slant.
All the above styles can optionally be stamped for added texture and beauty.

There is a wide variety of materials available for lawn edging and landscaping borders. These includes plastic, metal, wood, brick and stone. Concrete curbing offers a durable and attractive alternative.
Why Use Concrete for Lawn and Landscape Edging?
Plastic edging is more easily damaged by lawnmowers and other lawn maintenance machinery. Some types can suffer color fading or become brittle due to sun exposure. Plastic edging is not as rigid as concrete. It can pull out easier or stray from its intended location.
Some metal lawn edging can rust. Metal can be dented. It’s pretty hard to dent concrete. Metal edging is usually quite thin and doesn’t have the bold visual impact or styling choices of concrete curbing.
Wooden lawn edging and landscape borders have a tendency to rot. Treated wood won’t rot as quickly, but then there are considerations to be made for the chemicals in treated wood, especially when food crops are involved. Splinters can also be an issue.
Bricks and stone lawn and garden borders can be nice but mortars can crack with freezing and thawing. If they’re not mortared, stone or brick can stray or be knocked from where they are supposed to be.
These drawbacks can by and large be avoided by installing continuous concrete landscape borders. Your investment in concrete curbing will pay off with years of satisfaction.
Looking Into Other Curbing Options?
The Mowers Edge curbing style has been a popular choice of continuous concrete landscape borders over the years. It was originally marketed with ease of lawn mowing in mind. We find, however, that Mowers Edge excels more as a picture-frame styled lawn edge than a lawn mowing aid. Customers should be aware that trimming with a line weeder or edger will still likely be needed to achieve a professional finished look during lawn maintenance. For a complete curbing feature that can be stamped, colored and allows for easy lawn care consider the tapered slant or 3 x 5 square.
