    I need about 35-40 boulders ranging in size from 22" to 30" tall and wide, length can vary some.
    Any body got any good suppliers say within 5 hours of Roanoke VA, I need them soon and just wanted to see if anyone had any ideas (better price) before I ordered from my supplier.

    Thanks

    Lee, I would love for that to work, but for one thing nobody wants our ugly quarry stone in a patio or wall and the second reason is that Jacks Mounatin or Rockydale wont sell anything bigger than shoreline rip rap.

    Nice to see someone else from the area.

    Yes I know, Ive got a couple suppliers ive checked with in Carolina, In the past though seems like boulders run a little cheaper farther north.

    90% of what we do is on the lake, we have a few clients who own a home at the lake and also one in Roanoke that we have done work for, and also have a couple others there as well, but mostly our work comes from the lake.
    Whats your opinion for the need of hardscapes in your area?
