Concrete Curb a Lawn

    I recently had this decorative curbing put in my yard.
    A month later, the neighbors had a fence installed, and the installers
    cracked it in one place, plus put many chips in the cement.

    This pattern was poured with a mold. The guy who poured it left the
    area. The fence company is trying to find someone to repair it.

    Does anyone know if a split piece of concrete can be re-sealed properly,
    or does it need to be completely re-done?

    Thanks.

    Sounds like Kwik Kerb, an Australian innovation which sells exclusively
    by franchised installers.

    The sales material we were sent locally (unsolicited) seemed really
    cheesy, although we vaguely knew the franchisees (who aren't the type to
    disappear). The product itself seemed nice, but I haven't seen it close up.
    Concrete repair, per se, should be relatively simple, but even in the
    world of bog-standard grey driveways, it's hard to get an exact color
    match. That's probably your real problem. How big are the dings? Could
    you live with a repair that looks like a repair from less than ten feet
    away? I imagine taht people who like the super-neat Kwik Kerb look in
    the first place aren't the type who want a variegated garden edging.

    Thanks so much for the info. The nicks are not too bad, but the one
    area, as I mentioned is completely split in half. I am not too worried
    about the color discrepancy as I won't see it as much as my neighbors
    (I have arborvitaes on most of my side), and luckily, it is on the
    backyard side which is an empty field.

    This curbing you referred me to is alot like it, but mine is just one
    solid piece of concrete, no little squares to make a pattern.

    I just hope they can repair it, without taking the entire thing out and
    pouring a new mold.

    Thanks.
