DECORATIVE ROCK + STONE & BOULDERS
The Plant Escape Way
Transform your Facility Landscape into a Rustic Haven with Lasting Rock and Boulders
WHY USE ROCK IN YOUR LANDSCAPING?
Decorative Rock offers a perpetually clean look to property owners who require lasting elements in their commercial landscape. Hardscaping provides multiple benefits and can be used for ground covering, covering driveways or walking paths. Landscaping rocks look great and give an edge to the lush green foliage that surrounds your property. With Plant Escape, you will be pleased with our wide array of decorative rocks and landscaping stones that are not only durable, but practically maintenance-free.
INFUSE CHARACTER WITH DECORATIVE ROCKS AND BOULDERS
Rocks and Boulders are perfect for adding focal points to your landscape design. We provide an assortment of rock options, including rock ground cover, flagstone, river rocks, boulders, polished pebbles, and cobblestones to our customers. While rocks cost more than mulch, they are your best bet if you want to keep your property clean. Pine needles and leaves can be blown out of rocks whereas if you try to blow them out of mulch, you just blow the mulch out of the bed too. From a landscaper and our maintenance perspective, this is the way to go.
WHAT DOES ROCK COST?
Although rocks reflect resilience and last forever, they tend to cost more than dressing up a property with mulch. You can expect to pay about twice the cost for decorative rock than a quick mulch spruce up of your property.
Decorative rock will vary in price based on the kind of rock you opt for. A simple crushed Granite will run you around $75 per ton while 2″ River Rock costs around $175 per ton. If you want to go with a Mexican Beach Pebble, it tends to run around $1,200 per ton. No matter which rock you chose, we estimate it takes our guys around 1.5 hours to install a ton. At $65 per hour, it’s about $100 in labor for installation of each ton. So if you added a ton of River Rock it would cost around $275 installed. Factors such as limited truck access will have an impact on the price. Other expenses include delivery of materials, trip charges (bring the guys out) and dump fees if materials need to be removed.
Boulders are sold by the ton and as a rule of thumb, a 1 - yard square (3' x 3' x 3') boulder weights around a ton.
