~ Front Yard Curbs ~

Our Sunday; The creation of the front yard curbing. We already had the curbing around one of the trees and the front border plants. We had bender board around the river rock and the tree facing the drive way. We knew we wanted to complete the curbing and since the weather had perked up we decided to have the curbing done.
These guys were great and everything was done to perfection.
This little red curbing machine is amazing, it was fun to watch.

Tomorrow we have to rinse down the curbing and the pattern will show up more. Next weekend we will add more river rock. We love the way it turned out, I think it looks like a dry river bed and has a playful feel to it. I will show you next week the final outcome.
