A big stone, right? In short, the answer is no! A true landscape boulder will be at LEAST 10” across. Landscape boulders come in all shapes, patterns, colors and sizes and have been shaped by nature for thousands of years. No two landscape boulders will be exactly alike. Wide variations allow you the opportunity to find the perfect boulder for your yard in Tampa Bay.
Typically landscape boulders can be classified into two distinct types which are largely defined by their shape. Landscape boulders that have that have been shaped by rivers or water are typically made of sandstone or granite; these are classified as round landscape boulders. The second type of landscape boulders are called angular landscape boulders. These landscape boulders are typically made of granite, basalt, sandstone and quartzite and have jagged, blasted edges and faces. They are often columnar, boxy or rectangular in shape.

Choosing Landscape Boulders
