    Great value, nice size, has helped hostas with slugs
    I did my front flower bed with these, they look great and were easy to put down. I got them early in the season and put some down around my hostas just as they started coming up, and slugs do not like the feel of these. I put these over the existing mulch, which has kept the neighbor cat from using my flower beds as a litter box. The size and color in each bag was consistent, I walk very carefully over them so I don't lose my balance, and it's easy to use a blower to get grass clippings and leaves off. I would recommend them. The bags aren't heavy like the marble chips/stones, so I was able to do the work on my own. I will never use mulch again.

      Used in my grill
      I got a used broil king free to restore and when it came time to replace the "flavor waves" I decided to go old school and used lava rocks instead. I purchased 2 bags when 1bag is all I used and still have some left. They work great. The only bad thing about these lava rocks is the bag has very few large lave rocks. Lots of very small ones. I'd still would purchase 2 bags Incase one bag doesn't have enough large rocks for your grill. A few of the rocks in the bag seemed like large gravel, and not lava rocks. Nevertheless, much cheaper than the "bbq" lava rocks and works way better than flavor bars, because they actually add more flavor and they retain heat, allowing you to use less gas. I recommend them! I just wish they had more large rocks, and not the tiny ones.

        Red Lava Rock with an assortment of Grey and Yellow Stones
        Bought 30 bags of Vigoro Red Lava Rock last week. The 1st twelve did contain almost a 100% Lava rock. The next 18 had one or two yellow stones as if put in the bags as a joke, but they also had about 10-15% other rocks, basically cut Stones like grey quarry stones used for road beds that were nowhere near the porus lave rocks, some colored red for disguise. After lugging those bags into my car, into the back yard, I put them down but armed today with pictures of mixed rocks not what I purchased. It's buyer beware with Vigoro rocks. The company should be held accountable for fraudulently labeling the bags Red Lava Rock and then stuffing them with stones. Vigoro, is your quality control really that bad? Untimately Jimmy the manager at the Lake Worth II store saw my point and agreed to credit me for 18 of the mixed bags.

          Purchased Lava Rock for a backyard landscaping project. Description was exactly what I wanted and meet all needs. The delivery was on time and much easier than picking up myself over several trips. The plants and rocks now pop! Looks beautiful and turned out great.

          We were very tired about how fast weeds grew in our shade garden. So we decided to put down landscape fabric and lava rock, then placed flower pots on top. It is much easier to pull the occasional weed that pops up, but still provides color.

          Misrepresented
          I bought 40 bags of red lava stone and was very disappointed. The stone has multi colors, and the most annoying part is that its not even RED. The stone turns PINK after the moist dries out from them. This is a picture of how they look like once they start to dry out. I'm very disappointed by the color of these stones especially because they should be Red as in the description.

              I could not be happier!!! Not all the Lava Rock is "red" and not all the rocks are exactly the same "size" but that is exactly what gives it its character. It looks great and this sure looks better than the yellow/brown River Rock I was going to go with.

                Got pink rocks and red dust in 4 bags!
                I bought 5 bags of red lava rock. Only one was true red. So disappointed. Being a 62 year old woman I hauled everything on my own only to be disappointed in the quality.

                  I used this product to aid in soil retention on back of my home, which sits on a slope. After compacting new dirt at a slope from the house, I placed these lave rocks on top. They stay in place, hold the soil in place, and allow water to drain through keeping the soils moist. This is very important in South Texas, where we have expansive clay soils. The rocks have worked exceptionally well.

                  I have used this lava rock along our driveway and in front of our house. It looks real good and stays that way. I have had it there for over 15 years. I did extend the area along our drive way so it extends to the curb since we do not have a side walk.
