Plantscapes Eireann are kerbing experts working throughout Cavan, Monaghan, Leitrim and srounding counties. Wherever there is planting and paving, it is essential to use a kerb to edge the planting in order to retain the soil during heavy rain and keep your paving clean.
Kerb stones are made of concrete or stone, which are long-lasting and resistant to weather and other environmental factors. They are designed to define the boundaries of driveways, walkways and garden beds, as well as provide a visual barrier between different areas of a property. Kerb stones come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors to suit different design styles and preferences. As part of our Hard Landscaping service we install kerbing for gardens, driveways and walkways. Talk to us today about your kerbing needs and our team at Plantscapes Eireann we will advise you on the best type of kerbing for your garden or driveway.

Durability and Longevity
One of the most significant advantages of kerb stones is their durability and longevity. Unlike other materials like wood or plastic, kerb stones are built to last. They can withstand heavy foot traffic, harsh weather conditions, and even the weight of vehicles. This makes them an excellent choice for driveways, walkways, and other high-traffic areas.
Kerb stones are also resistant to chipping and cracking, which can be a common problem with other materials like concrete or asphalt. This means that they require less maintenance over time, saving you time and money in the long run.
Versatility and Customization
Kerb stones are available in a wide range of sizes, shapes, and colors, making them highly versatile and customizable. This means that you can use them to create a wide range of different designs and patterns, from simple borders to more intricate patterns and mosaics. Kerb stones are also highly adaptable to different landscape designs, whether you’re going for a more traditional or modern look. They can be used to define borders, create steps, and even build retaining walls.
In addition to their practical benefits, kerb stones also offer significant aesthetic appeal. They add a touch of elegance and sophistication to any landscaping or paving project, making them an excellent choice for those looking to enhance their property’s overall aesthetic appeal. Kerb stones are available in a variety of finishes, including smooth and textured, allowing you to choose the look that best complements your property’s style and character.

Finally, kerb stones are incredibly easy to maintain. Unlike other materials like wood or asphalt, they do not require regular sealing or staining. They are also resistant to weeds and grass, which can grow between the joints of other materials like bricks or pavers. To clean kerb stones, all you need is soap and water or a mild cleaning solution. You can also use a pressure washer for more stubborn stains or dirt buildup.
Kerb stones can act as a barrier between vehicular and pedestrian traffic, providing a safe and defined area for pedestrians to walk. This improves the safety of the outdoor space, especially in areas with high traffic such as commercial complexes and parking lots. Additionally, kerb stones can be designed to have a rough surface, providing better traction for vehicles and pedestrians, reducing the risk of slipping and falling.
Increased Property Value
Using kerb stones in landscaping and paving projects can significantly increase the value of your property. The enhanced aesthetics and functionality of the outdoor space will attract potential buyers and add value to your property. Moreover, kerb stones are a long-term investment, providing a durable and low-maintenance option for your outdoor space.

A good driveway can enhance the look and value of any property instantly. The choices of your drive are endless from brick paving to matted dyed concrete through to tar-mac and cottage shingle. The removal of storm water or drainage is of upmost importance from a practical point of view. Whereas cosmetically enhancing your property speaks volumes.
A paved driveway is an excellent choice for adding value to your home, as well as providing you with a great looking, highly functional driveway. Paved driveways create a smart first impression for any home. They offer a smooth, flat surface, but with the finer detail that comes with using a skilled craftsperson.
The biggest selling point of gravel as a driveway material is the price point. It is a fraction of the cost of a paver, brick or even concrete driveway. That makes gravel an especially attractive option for homeowners with long driveways—which is why gravel driveways are nearly ubiquitous in rural areas. The gravel should be maintained regularly and replaced every few years.
