ake curbs with a

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

mix is not too wet (0"-1"
slump).

process until desired

extruded from the machine.
4. Use the curb trowel to

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:

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.
