Curb Cutting Costs

Curb cutting, which is the process of installing a ramp or "apron" that connects a home's driveway to a public road, typically costs between $2 and $10 per square foot. Specific apron costs can vary based on the driveway's size and the material used. For example, asphalt curb cutting typically costs between $2 and $5 per square foot, whereas concrete driveway costs can be as much as $10 per square foot.

DIY vs. Hiring a Landscaper

With the right tools and motivation, installing landscape curbing blocks can be a DIY project. Poured concrete, however, is much more complex and requires a professional.

Hiring a professional will incur additional labor costs but may be worth the added peace of mind. This is especially true if you're looking to have poured concrete curbing installed. Even with a concrete block or brick project, a professional will have the experience, equipment, and tools needed to complete the job on time. While searching for a concrete curbing installer near you, be sure to check that they are licensed, bonded, and insured.
