What Type Of Kerbing For Your Driveway
There is a range of kerbing options available that will suit a wide variety of driveway installations. These options are designed to not only retain your driveway but also to function as decorative and to add style to any driveway area.
The edging options range from standard brick on edge to concrete edging kerbs, block paving curbs and natural stone edging. Below, we will highlight some of the various styles available so you can see which type of edging might suit your driveway.
Concrete Edging Kerb
Concrete edging kerbs are one of the most common type of kerbing available. They are available generally just the one colour, that being grey. They’re available in various sizes depending whether you wish it to finish flush with your driveway.
Concrete edging kerbs are available with a sloped edge, a rounded edge, or a flat top edge. Generally, we always use flat top-edging kerbs as a divider at the front of the driveway from the local pavement.
Brick on Edge
Brick on edge is commonly used as a small retaining line for driveways against lawn areas and flower beds. Brick on edge is a block paving brick, laid on its side and bench the concrete. The benefit to using this is that you can use a matching colour to the driveway if you are opting for block paving.

Block Paving Kerbs
block paving kerbs, are available in two different sizes generally. KL kerb which is a large kerb and a Ks kerb which is a small kerb. They are available in multiple colours with the two most common being brindle and charcoal.
Block paving kerbs are available as a rounded kerb and a slanted kerb. They are also available in a matching style to cobblestone and Tegula Paving.
Natural Stone Kerbing
Natural stone kerbs are made from hewn stone and squared off. You can also use cobblestone as a natural stone kerb provided it has the depth to allow benching in concrete. With natural stone you are limited with the option of colours however you are guaranteed that whatever colour you pick, that colour will remain throughout its entire lifespan.
