Ours is a MIX-N-MATCH system, so there are endless combinations. But making up your own combination may not be necessary. Most people opt for one of the curbs depicted in the photos on our “Curb Picker” page   It is still useful to understand how they relate: 

1) Profile

The Profile is the cross-sectional shape of the curb. Most residential curbing is done with either the simpler “mower edge” or the frequently stamped “Low angle border”

2) Integral colour

This is also called the “base colour” it is the colour tinted all the way through the concrete when it is mixed

3) Release Colour

These are the colours that get used to stain  the surface of the concrete in the stamping process. The colour is dusted onto the surface before the stamp texture is applied . It is then washed in to provide a stained antique effect, settling mainly into the lower areas of the stamp impression

4) Texture

This is also called the “stamp” it is the impression  made into the surface of the concrete when it is still soft.
