Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sylvesterthekat Nice when the stones are big
I ordered four bags of these to cover the borders of a pathway that already has smaller stones but the smaller stones are easily blown around when using the leaf blower or if using a broom so I wanted larger ones to layer on top of them. I was happy with three out of the four bags that I received, the stones were nice and big and attractive (about 2.5-3") and shouldn't move around. The other bag, however, even though marked as the same size, contained smaller stones which were about the same size or slightly larger than the existing ones. Overall I'm happy but I wish they were consistently the same large stones. If they were, everything would have been five star rated.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by doglover1 would think three times before I bought on line again
the same size bag of stones in other colors was half the price in the store vs on line. I thought I was getting twice the size bag that I did. I see no reason that buying online vs in the store would be twice the cost.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Charlee Not one bit of polish
Looked like each rock had been hit with a hammer leaving a white bruise in about 6 places. Really ugly. When I returned them the clerk said, really, these are supposed to be polished!

I was really surprised to find these rocks are tinted red/pink and not actually red in nature. I didn't expect red red rocks, like lava rocks. By looking at the picture, I thought the rocks themselves would be in the red/pink family. I was still able to use them. They lend a very soft, desert feel but do not look like the picture provided to Home Depot at all.

Very happy with the quality and colour of the rocks. They fall more to the brown side than red, but you will see a lot of red cordovan type shade through it. As other reviewers have stated the stones do not cover as far as the specs state, so I think 2.5 bags for every one they stated was about perfect. I bought 2/3 large pebbles and 1/3 small, and I think this is the trick. The small pebbles fill in around the larger ones gaps, giving a much better coverage look and the size of small stones is large enough to not stand out to strongly against the large. I am happy with my purchase. :) (this same review will be in the 'large pebble section also)

These were not at all as pictured. They look like they were spray-painted a pinkish fire-engine red. Not at all what I was expecting.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by sjholub Not accurately described
These pebbles are large. I was planning on using them for a walkway but there's no way. They color and variation I thought was great. They're very cool looking. Also, "one bag covers approximately 6 sq. ft." from the description is so far off I figure it must be a misprint. Each bag covers about 1 square foot to a depth of maybe 2". If you've got a small area that's not a walkway, these would be very striking. Otherwise, you're going to spend a fortune to get enough stone to cover without ground showing through.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dissapointed buyer beware
I ordered three bags with the intent of using them as a slight upgrade to red lava rocks in our front landscaping. They shipped quickly and in the time frame advised. I expected the pebbles to range from brown to somewhat red and to have a slightly polished appearance. The bags we received contain large unpolished beige stones that have been painted a burgundy/purplish/dark pink color that rinses off when the stones are wet. (It is obvious they are painted as there are large paint drops on the stones). The effect is similar to that of poorly painted dark pink potatoes, and cannot be used. The bags are labelled red polished pebbles, so it is a quality issue rather than our receiving the wrong product.
