San Diego Landscaping Rocks: What You Want To Know

June 26, 2017

Here are some of the most frequent questions that people have asked Google in connection with landscaping rocks. We have answered them here, but we are more than willing to discuss any questions you have regarding San Diego landscaping rocks in person. Contact us today and tell us more about what you have in mind!

Where do San Diego landscaping rocks come from?

Landscaping rocks are usually mined in quarries, which guarantees consistency in appearance and quality. Quarries can provide boulders, building stone, rough cobbles, rainbow rocks, crushed stone and flagstone. River beds are sources of smoother boulders and river rocks. Beaches provide beach rocks, which is a term practically interchangeable with river rocks and landscaping pebbles. Gravel deposits are sources of gravel and pea gravel. Lava rocks are mined from real volcano cones.

Who sells San Diego landscaping rocks?

There is a variety of suppliers available. They mostly deal with building material and landscaping rocks. What is different among them is the range of materials they work with, the quality of workmanship when it comes to processing the materials and the quality of their customer service. We at Ralco Landscapes & Maintenance work mostly with Belgard, RCP Block & Brick and ORCO Paving stones (listed randomly, not in order of quality). However, what you should bear in mind is that it always pays to have a professional handle your landscaping project when it comes to rockscaping, for reasons such as:

  • Firstly, a professional is a good sounding board for your ideas. Maybe the color you were thinking isn’t the best choice for a certain area, or there is a better type of hardscape that you don’t know of.
  • Secondly, a San Diego landscaping company is there to see the whole project through, not just the rockscaping part. If you choose to go to a rock supplier on your own, they will not be there for all your questions.
  • Thirdly, a professional will be able to handle the delivery and the installation, having all the necessary tools, equipment and knowledge.
  • Lastly, a professional will have access to discounts and special deals that are not available to homeowners.

Who buys San Diego landscaping rocks?

You bought a house and you got a garden with it. One you don’t like, unfortunately. Seems that the previous owners were huge fans of rockscaping, whereas you don’t share their taste. This is a scenario that happens. In these situations people usually want to get rid of the rocks, but don’t know where they should take them. Depending on the type of the rocks, there are several possibilities. You can put them up on Craigslist or contact a charity to see if they’re interested. But your best bet are San Diego landscaping companies, such as Ralco Landscapes & Maintenance. Professionals will be able to tell you whether you can use the rocks in a way that is more in line with your preferences. Maybe it’s just a case of rearranging the rocks or adding features.
