There is a Difference with Border Magic®
Border Magic® is the only franchise in the concrete landscape edging industry. Others sometimes offer a similar style as us and usually claim they are just like us. We know however, that there are many important differences between the others and us. We feel it is important for you to know those differences before you make your decision. There is no substitute for Quality & Service
Border Magic® brand additives have been developed especially for our products which dramatically increases the strength and durability of our edging. Independent lab testing has shown our edging exceeds 5,000 pounds per square inch of break pressure, compared to other typical concrete products that average 3500 pounds per square inch of break pressure.
Just like tightly packed snow can make a hard snowball, our BM-2000 extruding machine has a compaction chamber that pushes the concrete forcefully through the mold at high pressure. Our machine is quite a bit larger than other machines which allows for even stronger compaction and more consistent compaction throughout your edging project. Smaller curbing machines have to be held back by hand for them to compact at all. This causes inconsistency in compaction, allowing for weak spots in the edging.
Border Magic® brand colors are manufactured to the highest specifications and are designed to last. They are mixed 100% into the concrete for a solid coloring through and through. Others just stain on top or put a layer of colored cement on top of the edging, which can pop off or be chipped off, leaving a noticeable area. We also have an additional additive that we have developed that bonds the colors in better with the concrete. We finally lock in the colors with our Border Magic® high quality sealers available only to licensed Border Magic® franchises that protect both the color and the edging from the elements.
Styles and sizes:
We offer 25 different mold designs including sidewalks up to 36” wide that can be given many different looks, tones, and colors. For homeowners that wish to create a more natural look we offer Stepping Stones. For those looking for a unique look all to their own, we offer Signature Patterns where you and your Border Magic® representative will work together to give you that custom look that will complement your décor. As you can see in our brochure, the looks we can achieve are limited only to your imagination.
