How long are the pieces and where do I buy them?
You can’t buy them. The breaks you see every 3’ are expansion/control joints. Every curb job is poured on site using our Curbing machines. All designs and colors are different; please visit our wed site for more details www.kurbing.com How deep do you dig and what type of base do you use?
We dig between 1-2 inches deep and about 10 inches wide using a Trencher. This is done without damaging your landscape beds or shrubbery. We use it to cut an even path along your landscape beds to ensure a level installation. We will sometimes add a small layer of topsoil or sand under the curb to ensure the level of the curb. If the ground should shift or settle in any way over time, the control joints help controls the cracking.
