Mow Strip Details and Recommendations

If you are considering a mow strip under your fence there are some things that you need to be aware of, and that we would recommend.

  • How wide and deep do you want the mow strip – depending on those dimensions the cost will be adjusted.
  • Is the mow strip for edging against the fence line or aesthetics only?
  • What style of fence are you considering – if you want a Trex® or cedar fencing one thing to be aware of, is that those styles of fence posts will expand and contract – therefore cracking and eventually breaking the mow strip. (See recommended diagram) We recommend that the mow strip be no wider than the post – if using Trex® or Cedar.

Mow Strip DiagramCFC Fences and Decks will install a basic (See attached diagram) mow strip for our customers. If there is something more custom (depth, width, or stamped concrete) we have concrete masons that we have worked with, that we will gladly pass their information on to potential customers– in order for them to make an informed decision.
