Landscape granite resin rock utility cover looks like a real rock. It works great to cover items that do not look good in your landscape or in your garden area. Natural colors that look good against any background. they come in different sizes and colors, which gives you lots of options. You can cover utility boxes, pumps and pipes. I added this one to my front garden and I think it adds to my yard. I would recommend this product if you need to cover up an item, or just make an improvement in your garden area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SanMN2013 Bye bye ugly utility post!
I am really happy to not see my utility post anymore. This was the only rock that would be tall enough. The rock is a little too perfect looking. If it weren't so perfect, no one would be able to tell. I planted some grasses around it to detract from the perfect shape of the rock. All in all, a good fix for a good price. I still needed to push the rocks around it when I took the photo.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by maggieb Nice addition to the landscape
I've been needing one of these to hide the connections for my pond and help keep them dry. It is taller than I thought it was going to be as it is designed to be buried in the ground to keep it stable. I intend to put a 5 gallon bucket under it and put the pump connection in the bucket then place the rock over the top. Not sure how I'll secure it as I can't bury it and still access the connections. I may add some real rocks at the bast to hold it in place. It looks way better than the box I did have to hide the connections from the elements. Looks posh.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by pingumel Not the size listed
Note that the actual size of this is 36"x14"x16"; I have called to ask that they update the size, but see that they haven't fully corrected it. It was originally listed as 44"H; I ordered this to cover a 40" utility cover and it was woefully short. If you're fine with the smaller dimensions, it's great. Though it is a little more transparent than the other rock-like covers - I can see the neon stickers on the utility box through the rock! It's not bad though, not too apparent unless you're looking right at it.

Looks great in the flower bed and covers a tree stump that wasn't removed.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by vicguyMN looks fake
Not real impressed with the looks of this "rock". It is tall and kind of looks like a headstone from a distance. It works to cover what I wanted covered for now, but will be looking for something else soon.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PaulCoMat Fantastic lightweight boulder
I have a large size Monolith Architectural rock by EMSCO. The actual outside measurements are 36 3/4" x 22" x 19" and it looks really nice. Size is not what is stated but you can trim the bottom if needed. It cuts easily with a variety of saws. I plan to paint mine to match our stucco color. Will easily conceal all kinds of yard items. You could mount speakers or lights in them if skilled. Mine will be used to cover our water supply lines where they come out of the ground & into the house. Outside faucets are installed on these feed lines as are pressure regulators, main on/off valve and irrigation drip timers & connections. We seldom freeze and our overnight temps often stay over 100 in summer. Our intense sun is the major problem here. The cold water will often scald you because these pipes are exposed to the sun. I have a casita out back with it's own supply line giving me 2 lines to cover so I plan to cut my rock in half top to bottom to cover both sets of lines. A pair of wood supports to fit under stucco overhang and they will stay in place. If not I can add weights inside also. A nice looking functional investment.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Texture Looks Fake
I was excited as all get out to cover my telephone pedestal with this EMSCO Rock. But went I went to the store to pick it up I was really disappointed in the texture. It looks like plastic even from a distance. I left it at store and got my $$ back. I know there's other more realistic brands out there so my quest continues...
