How to Build a DIY Concrete Curb

Whether you want to improve your home’s curb appeal by creating an attractive edge to your garden or you want to add concrete curbs to an extensive hardscaping project you’re undertaking, you don’t have to hire a contractor.

If you want to DIY your own curbs, you may need to rent one of these machines from a tool rental company. Ideally, you would work with at least a team of three people. One can mix concrete, another can shovel the concrete into the machine, and the last one can pull the machine along as it extrudes the curb. This DIY home project should be completed in a few hours at most.
