    I need to create a retaining wall using large boulders. The one the customer wants appear to be roughly 24" in width. I need to go two boulders tall, and 240 feet long. Any idea the cost of these boulders?

    We use granite boulders here, they weigh approximately 100 lbs per cubic ft. I haven't done any boulder work in 7-10 years so I couldn't quote prices beside unlikely they would match regionally.

    Just go to a quarry and find out. On here you are going to get prices that are not in your region.
