It is the largest rounded river rock gravel that you can get. Anything larger is classified small cobbles.

I checked out the site URL that you gave me. Couldn't find anything labeled OEM, but found a 3' x 8' gridded table w/legs. Is that what you use? I assume the legs are detachable.

The pic at the top of the page n the banner is what it looks like.. You can get the panels with out legs.. When you call them simple tell them that you are a landscaper and you need them for waterfeatures then they will send you a different price guide with all the varible shelf panel sizes the offer..

Feeding your Koi! Turner and I could if we get the ice saw out. lol!

Turner this is something I have been wanting to use to make life more simple and get rid of the blox for the most part. How is shipping? I'm sure it would be about the same for the both of us.

It varies depends on the size of the panels u get.. On my last order which was 15 panels the shipping came out to be around 12-15 dollars a piece on a 3 x 8 panel. So roughly 75-80 dollars apiece still a lot cheaper than the box w more strength.. I use the panels on all my pondless applications.

Here is pic of bubbling rock using a one 3x3 grate we been talking about. This what is called a holey stone. They come out of WI, Uppper Michigan etc.this particular stone weighs bout 1500 pounds plus. I love the fact that this stone is porus and that water flows through the holes as u can see.

What a great and fascinating type of rock! Heard of this type, but never seen it used before. Almost makes it a Pondless Waterfall with the many cascades. Looks great!

The cover rock that you used is what we call small cobbles. The grate can evidently support some weight.

Tadpole, what do you guy's get to use for boulders? It sounds like you get hit pretty hard with imported rocks.

We get the "Holy Limestone" like above for $130 a ton, but can only be used for pondless and accent builds.

The problem is that we have only 2 rock suppliers in this area, but only one has any real selection. There are so many different types and colors of rock that they pretty much stick with what they can get and resell. Nobody wants to pay the price for the good rock. They will, however, do special orders if the quantity is large enough. Their rock (boulders & cobbles) mainly come from Alabama, Arkansas, Tennessee and Texas. I would venture to guess that that same "holey" rock would cost at least $300-$350/ton down here....maybe more.
