A rock is a rock is a rock — but when is a rock not a rock? When you need it for your landscaping. You can’t just wander out into the woods and haul away whatever rock, stone and boulder you can get your hands on — you need architectural-grade rocks and/or paving stones. There are many different types of these so get to know them so you know what you need.
Bluestones are available in green, brown, gunmetal, blue and lilac-coloured sandstone — they allow for numerous fabrication options.
Quartzite is available in blue, green, grey and gold. This is one of the harder stones and suitable for many applications both inside and out.
Sandstone refers to various stones coming from desert and dry climates — it’s ideal for multiple climates and colour preferences.
Eden rock is a beautiful, andesitic basalt and comes in various wall grades, which adds continuity to larger landscape projects. They are affordable stones and work well in garden barriers, dry stack retaining wall applications as well as accent boulders.
Skippers and cobbles are natural and colourful ways to border your garden — these stones have become very popular in dry stacked garden walls and water features.
Granite boulders come in all sorts of colours and textures — enough to suit any need and compliment any yard decor.
Pebbles can serve a fantastic decorative accent for your garden or water feature with a variety of colour combinations inspired by coastlines and rivers around the world.
Sunburst pebbles are a beautiful addition to any landscape area with their warm golden tone. They are a smooth face, round pebble that will be sure to delight any area you place them in.
Washed concrete sand is an aggregate sand usually composed of either trap rock, limestone or granite. It’s most commonly used as a key ingredient in cement or hot asphalt but it can be used as a base layer and leveling medium for patios or walkways made of concrete paving stones.
Decomposed granite is rock of granitic origin that has weathered to the point that it readily fractures into smaller pieces of weak rock. Further weathering produces rock that easily crumbles into mixtures of gravel-sized particles, sand and silt-sized particles with some clay. This makes it an excellent source for a natural stone and flagstone pathway filler — it compacts and locks you products into place and you can add a stabilizer to keep it lasting even longer.
