Customer Questions & Answers

Can this be use in a fire pit?

Asked by: lo
Hi lo. Thank you for your question. The specs on the Virgoro bag of lava rock does not state that it can be used for anything other than for its expressed purpose. There are two other products from The Home Depot that are designed for the higher temperatures like the Lava Rock for the BBQ’s and the Lava Rock for the Fireplaces. These are the only two that are designed for use in a recreational environment. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance. Rick_HD_OC

0.5 cu. ft. Black Lava Rock is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my Black Lava Rock I used the Black Lava Rock to fill in an area about 50' by 6' with a border to define my property from my neighbor that I share a side yard. He doesn't water or mow his side and it made my side look horrible.I chose the black as an accent color since I have black shutters and black solar lights and it looks fantastic. It was just what my yard needed to define it from my neighbors yard and I couldn't be more pleased at the result. I plan to use more of the Black Lava Rock in my backyard since it looks so good in front & wears much better than bark. Great product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible. Turns grey within 24 hours This product ruined what was going to be a very cool black pathway. I installed most all of the rock in the evening, but could not fish because one bag was about 50% grey. Next morning i return that bag thinking i just got a bad batch that hadn't fully been dyed. By the time I got home with a replacement bag, most all of the rock i had installed the night before had turned grey. So it wasn't a bad batch, it is this entire product line. The black is simply not colorfast and now all the rocks have turned grey. If you want black, DO NOT buy these rocks. I will be seeking a full refund on all the bags i purchased and installed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Black Lava Rack An outstanding choice that replaces bark that fades and blows away. Dry look (similar color to black weed barrier) or wet (a dark black) both make a nice neat look for your yard borders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Black Lava Feature Rock Bought five bags of this over the past month to cover my front garden area. Living in a strong wind area, the prior black mulch was blown away by the wind. This lava rock does not move and truly enhances the look of the front garden area. It is not heavy to haul in the bags provided. I will be buying more over time as I continue to rearrange my garden area.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Turns Grey I too was disappointed in the rocks turning grey. I chose the lava rock for the black accent color. I feel the manufacturer of the product misrepresents it by labeling it in large letters "black lava."
