Landscaping with PlastiForm®: Do More With Less

Can you even begin to count how many times you wanted to experiment with creative concrete forms and shapes, only to get stuck with boxy, boring designs and imperfect radiuses? Why waste all that money on throwaway forming materials, time and labor on a project that’s less than stellar?

Each New Landscaping Project Demands More

plastiform walkway 02 smAnd so do your clients! Over the last 20 years we’ve been bombarded with over-the-top home makeover reality shows and expectations are high. Clients don’t want simple walkways, edging and landscaping – they want to showcase natural features, enhance and transform their spaces into something more.

But what if you could create amazing features like custom concrete furniture, outdoor kitchens, concrete garden bridges, fire pits and even sculpted concrete ponds and pools, all in less time with less waste?

The Greener the Better

Clients aren’t just demanding more in terms of creativity and results, they also want their projects to be green too! Landscaping budgets can easily be eaten up by throwaway materials and labor used for forming concrete; but what if you could cut and control your costs and get the benefits of using a preferred LEED and certified USGBC building material? In an industry where “Cash is King”, cutting costs without affecting results is so important.

Imagine that your concrete forms weren’t only reusable hundreds of times, but recyclable and exclusively manufactured right here in America?

PlastiForm® is Reusable, Recyclable and LEED Certified

plastiform walkway smThe PlastiForm® Concrete Forming System was the first full plastic flatwork forming system on the market, and today it’s not only Made in the USA, but fully recyclable, US Green Building Council certified and a LEED preferred building material. Each board comes with a lifetime guarantee.

  • Go Beyond Traditional Concrete Forms: Each board is plastic extruded with a hollow channel, imbued with a proprietary blend of UV inhibitors, silicon and titanium; they never break, peel, split or warp.
  • Rigid to Radius: Slip a piece of conduit or rebar into the hollow channel and you have a board as rigid and strong as lumber. Need to make radius, star or ray shapes? Bend to the right shape, slide the camlock in place and you’re good to go.
  • Lightweight and Easy to Use: Each board is 1/4 the weight of lumber, allowing you to transport up to 1500 linear feet in a single load. Reduce fuel costs, reduce labor costs while getting more done.

Used by NASA, Disney, municipalities and other companies around the world, it’s not hard to see what makes the Original PlastiForm® CFS so popular.
