How to Make a
Concrete Curb

You can make a curb with
a manual curb machine by
following these quick and
easy instructions:
1. Dig a trench 2" deep by
9" wide.
2. Mix 3 1/2 parts sand with
1 part cement. It is very
important that the concrete
mix is not too wet (0"-1"
slump).
3. Place the concrete mix
into the curb machine and
begin ramming it with the
handle. Continue this
process until desired
concrete curb has been
extruded from the machine.
4. Use the curb trowel to
smooth over any rough
surfaces on the newly
extruded concrete border
curb.
5. Slice half way through
the curb with a knife or flat
trowel at a distance of
about  3' apart. This will
control unwanted cracks.

Options:
1.
Use a paint Brush or a
sprayer to apply liquid  
concrete color stain to the
curb.

2. Use a brick tool to cut in
a pattern or design on the
concrete curb.
