Asked by: sheasks
If it's the same stuff Dad has, yes, it blows across the driveway into the lawn, sometimes into the street. He does have strong canyon winds at night.

0.5 cu. ft. Decorative Stone Red Lava Rock is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 294.

The pieces are very large, 2" x 3" with some even bigger and they are not nearly as uniform as the product photo suggests. More importantly, they are not as bright or uniform in color either. Mine were a mix of red, orange, and a lot of straight-up grey and even black. I understand natural variations but the grey and black pieces were frustrating. I ended up having to crush these with a hammer to make them smaller for the project I needed them for. (Note: the discoloration I noticed was BEFORE I crushed them.) I do feel like it was a good deal if used for larger landscaping projects though, as you do get a lot and the color will be less noticeable outside.

This landscape rock is exactly what I was looking for to permanently cover areas between plants with the Mediterranean look I desired. At first I was concerned the rock was colored and would wash away. In fact, upon first laying it down it looked orangish, not the look I wanted. Then, I hosed it down. A red-orangish residue did wash off leaving a darker, maroon red. Also, this rock is the real deal with surfaces that gleam with mica and quartz. It appears to be a kind of granite. For those who commented about the coverage, well, you need to do your homework. That all depends on the depth you want. Also, rock doesn't settle like sand and other materials. I would suggest a minimum depth of 3" with 4" being even better. I don't use weed block cloth and lay mine down with a deep enough depth to discourage weeds. Hope this review helped.

One bag was almost half filled with this stuff...I purchased a total of 30 bags. Check bags before buying. It is possible the rocks were crushed during transport. I just hope they hold up for the landscaping.

Comes with alot of extra dirt in the bag but you can wash it right off the rocks. Makes the water crystal clear if you add this and some pumice. I also use it for gardening and aquascaping. Extremely versatile.

A few of the bags contained rocks with seemingly washed out color. Overall the finished results still look great but could have been a bit better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect color! I purchased these stones for a new flowerbed I installed, because they match what I had used in the adjacent flowerbed. The color looks nice with the house paint color, which is lavender with dark maroon shutters
