    Well I guess that all depends on how big your boulders are. Not to be rude or anything.

    Here is our boulder wall.

    Feel free to count the boulders here as well!

    Some may weigh 276 pounds, and some weigh over 3,000 pounds!

    Have at it!

    it takes more than you think, and they're hard on a truck. the job I'm working on now we've gone through about 20 triaxle loads of boulders and more to come shorline stabalization, walls, etc you're also going to need a excavator w/ a thumb to make it doable.
