Landscaping stones and rocks are often a nice addition to a garden or yard. They can add color, texture and a little bit of ruggedness to an otherwise plain landscaping. Fortunately, there are many places that sell landscaping rocks for the average homeowner to purchase.
There are many types of landscaping stones. They range from the tiny pebbles that fill in a garden floor to larger than life boulders that adorn a rugged backyard. They come in a variety of colors as well, including red tones, which are popular in the southwest. In addition, you can even purchase artificial-or faux--rocks which look real, but weigh less making them more manageable to move, especially for large boulders.
There are many online-based stores that sell landscaping stones, including the larger varieties. Expect to pay shipping and handling, but with the competition online, it may be cheaper than a local supplier. Example online companies include improvementscatalog.com and pavestone.com.
Your local garden centers, as well as your large home improvement stores, like Home Depot and Lowes, sell landscaping stones. Small, and some medium size rocks should be in stock. Larger landscaping rocks may be available by special order only.
Your local rock supplier and masonry stone distributors sell landscaping rocks and should have a plethora available in stock and may be less expensive than the garden centers. While most companies are listed in your local phone book or online, you can also call a local masonry or landscaping company to ask for a local supplier.
Local landscapers may also sell landscaping stones. In fact, you may be surprised to learn that you can purchase and have your rocks delivered and installed for a similar price as purchasing the rocks yourself. This is because the landscapers receive a wholesale price from their suppliers.
