hi, I can't find a particular type of kerb anywhere, just saw it on someones lawn, it is the grey kerb that looks sliced horizontally, so it generally flows evenly from the tarmac to the kerb to the grass, smooth, would say the kerb is only 2 inches in height? but it is wider than it is high, doesn't have a drop like the standard kerbs, lies flat to the grass.

Don't know if I have described it very well, can't even find an image on google to show you but need to buy them and I need to ring up places with a name for them as no one seems to know what I mean. Quite embarrassing!!
If you do know the name, do you know where I could buy them for a good price in ireland please?

Sometimes the standard kerb is sunk deeper into the ground giving the impression of a miniature kerb. Alternatively find a local manufacturer of lintels and window cills etc they will probably be able to help you out.

I have kerbs like that 2" high and 8" wide but mine are impressed on top to resemble a plank of wood. They're so realistic that everyone thinks they are made of real wood.

You have to put a good dollop of concrete underneath because they'll crack otherwise. Don't know that they have a specific name. I bought them in the garden centre in Gooig but that's too far away for you. (They were extremely cheap though.)
