    Hey guys, Ive got a question on a boulder type. I have searched alll over the internet, and Im sure its just becasue I am not typing in a good seach but. I have a commercial client that had a very poor grading job done on there property (which we are going to be fixing, but the ditch is a huge problem. The property sits higher than the back of the property, and both sides of the property slop down towards the back of the property. But there is no drains or sewer for the water to flow to, so naturally when it rains it just puddles up in the ditch and it cant be cut.

    So anyways we were talking about lining the entire ditch at least were the water builds up with boulders. But I cant think of the type of boulders. They are those whithish colored ones that you see in natural areas and around ditches and such.
