    Folks, I have a customer who wants a couple of 2,000 lb. or so boulders...we don't have any in our area so I will have to have them shipped, can anyone tell me what I might expect to pay for them (just the boulders) not including shipping...thanks

    Come get them out of my back yard & you can HAVE them. One is taller than I am (5').

    May be a logistical nightmare though. :D

    I pay $80.00 a ton for landscape boulders from Alabama Wholesale Stone ( www.alastone.com )

    They have any kind of rock you might need.

    I am going to purchase 3 large boulders this week. If there is any way I can help you out just PM me. Can take photos if needed.


    They will deliver your rock.

    o-so-n-so, thank you very much, for that web site link..it's funny how things work out sometimes. It just so happens I have an aunt who lives in Cedar Bluff, and I am in that area quite often. I am also in the stump removal biz. I will send you a PM with details.

    thanks dcondon but the Alabama location seems more practical for me here in Mississippi...but sounds like you have some beautiful rock up there...
