In the past I have purchased my rocks at a local company and was always satisfied with the rocks I received from them. So I decided that I would stop by to see the selection of rocks and decide if rocks were in the budget.
So for less than 20 bucks we have rocks for around the mailbox. The rocks won't wash down the curb during the rain nor deteriorate away and need to be redone as would mulch.
We ran out of steam about halfway through that project. Luckily R had laid an old tarp in the bed of the truck and we were able to grab the edge of the tarp and pull the remaining rocks out of the bed of the truck.
Looks like the new rocks will get a little bath tonight when it rains.
