Our rails, brackets, posts and post caps are made from either cast or extruded aluminum. Both the casting and extruding design and manufacturing process make the aluminum extremely durable. However, Curb Allure’s tree guard and garden fencing side panels and certain accessories cannot be manufactured in the same way because of their thickness and design. Therefore, these components are made of steel in order to withstand the rigors of an urban environment.

Our landscape fencing products have a protective undercoating and are finished with the highest rated DuPont powder coating available for outdoor applications in order to minimize the effects of long-term exposure to the urban elements.

Our manufacturers and Curb Allure designers, along with our structural engineering firm, have carefully chosen the perfect metals and alloys for our different components that strike a balance between strength, environmental friendliness, design, and cost in order to make this outstanding line of tree & garden guard products.Click here to see the structural engineering firm's (Blue Sky Design, Inc. Consulting Engineers) summary report of Curb Allure’s Tree Guards.

You heard sctly. Apples to apples, steel is stronger than aluminum, that is why we extrude and cast our aluminum to give our tree fences the strength needed. As mentioned above, we worked with our structural engineering firm, Blue Sky Design, Inc. Consulting Engineers, and manufacturing partners extensively to create the cast and extrusion molds and chose the alloys to get the perfect combination of strength and function. Because you can't extrude or cast our tree guard panels and accessories, we couldn't get the strength we needed from aluminum and therefore we chose steel for these products.

Although our aluminum frames don't rust, they can corrode over time.  Dog urine is highly corrosive. To prevent corrosion, we recommend hosing down your tree guard --namely the front two posts where dogs typically urinate-- on a regular basis. Also, consider purchasing our Pup-Pee ProtectorsTM for the front two Posts closest to the building. This is especially important for the guards to the immediate left and right of large apartment buildings which tend to have a higher concentration of dogs. If you do see evidence of corrosion, call us immediately and we can advise you on how to fix your guard. Please read the Care Suggestions in the Assembly Instructions carefully for other useful tips.

Tree guards are little fences that surround the perimeter of a street pit or well that protect the tree from hazards. Tree guards are either 3-, 3.5- or 4-sided.  Landscape fencing and garden guards can be any number of sides and protect sidewalk gardens or can be added as a decorative element to any standard masonry wall.

Yes we can, but there will be a $149 fee for us to do so, but $100 will be refunded on your invoice. But remember, if you follow our simple instructions you can properly measure one tree guard in less than 5 minutes. Click here to see our tree guard measuring tips.

Our standard sized tree guards weigh about 35 lbs. Our extended tree guard (where one side is greater than 10 feet) weighs about 45 lbs. If you order side panels and accessories, they will be added, where possible, to the box with the guard. If the box becomes too heavy, or the additional panels and accessories don't fit properly, these products will be shipped separately.

Specifications mean different things to different people. Let us know what you are looking for, and we will happily answer your question.

While young, newly planted trees benefit most from tree guards due to their vulnerability, older trees in urban inviornments can also benefit from protection against dog waste, soil compacting, cars, and trash buildup.

The tall narrow arion fences called tree grates or horse guards can definitely damage growing trees as they can girdle or choke the tree over time.

The maintenance and replacement schedule for tree guards depend on environmental conditions. Regularly inspect tree gaurds for damage and repair as soon as possible to avoid further damage. Addition Brackets are provided in Bag A. 
We suggest cleaning and tightening your guard at least once a year. We also sell touch up paint if needed.
