Choosing material for your commercial kerbing

Kerbing isn't solely a practice performed to edge roads and streets, it can also be something you have performed in a garden to distinguish different parts from each other. It's also common to have driveways and various paths on your property kerbed, to put up a visible line between different purpose areas. Depending on your business, there might be certain conditions that prevent you from using certain types of kerbing, or you might want to have certain aesthetic qualities in your kerbing material. To decide which type of kerbing material would suit you best, there are a few things you should think about.


Different commercial kerbing contractors specialise in different types of kerbing. A company specialising in garden kerbing will have a larger variety of natural materials, whilst a company specialised on heavy duty road kerbing will be able to do kerbing especially designed for keeping vehicles on the road and off the rest of the property. These types of businesses often offer a range of concrete options, as this is the most common material for heavy duty kerbing. Concrete is a perfect option for you if you have an industrial property, or a driveway with a lot of traffic. It's easy to maintain and is therefore also a good option if you have great lengths of roads to kerb.


Brick is another material that is durable and easy to maintain. It's, however, slightly softer than concrete, and is therefore not as adapted to usage on heavy duty environments. Many commercial concrete kerbing contractors offer also this solution, as it can be used for the same purposed as concrete kerbing. Brick is also a good option if you want something that looks quite rustic that can also be used in kerbing options for the property's garden, not just its roads.


Wood is a common material to use for garden kerbing, as it's a natural material that doesn't disturb the harmony of a well kept garden. It's cheap and looks good, but does come with some maintenance in order to no lose its appearance and to not rot. If your business doesn't have someone hired to tend to the garden, wood might be too much of a hassle. When it comes to kerbing roads and driveways, wood is also a poor choice of material for anything but smaller paths. It can't keep a vehicle on the road, but can only serve as a marker between the actual road and surrounding areas.
