In my site I have a curb.  I just created it as a floor. Is there an easier way?  How can I go about making the curb with an rounded top corner?

We find these easier to do as walls.  If you insist on modeling the round corner, you can use a wall sweep (reveal) if a wall, an in-place void sweep or if a floor, a floor edge sweep.

I have posted this many times, if you want an accurate result. This will work pretty well although fairly complicated.

typically I'll do it as a wall like Hub mentioned. However if it is in the forground of a rendering similar to yours, I'll accurately model the curb as an in-place sweep. I have a profile family setup for our local standard and then apply that to my sweep path. Check your local standards but this is how curbs typically looks here in Ontario...
