    yep, could definitely lose the rock perimeter, but as long as the customer was pleased.

    I like the way you set your rocks. They don't look thrown in or sitting on top. It is not as easy to set them so that they look rested, yet not tipped over. You obviously took care in placing them.

    Natural Stonescapes ,The art and craft of Stone Placement,by Richard L. Dube,ALPD and Fredrick C. Campbell..really good book.The lg one is about

    Customer wanted me to do the whole space in that rock...luckly I convinced them it was too expensive.They also wanted that Mariposite rubble along the topside because there is a drain there and the lady liked that rock so had me put it all along

    I would agree. Sounds like some good money.

    But I do agree, what a small space
