Smaller than stated
Needed a fake rock to cover a 27" septic cover, so this "28x30 inch" cover should have been fine. I can't believe I paid so much for it. It measures more like 30x25". Doesn't cover my lid. Also more fragile than I would have expected. Blew over in the wind, bumped a tree and a hole broke in it.

    I like this "rock" as it is quite realistic but easy to move around as I change my landscaping design from year to year.  It is made of fiberglass, resin and rock particles to make it durable and painted with acrylic paints that have UV protection to make the finish last longer.  This faux rock is much more economical than real boulders along with being way easier to move because they are hollow so it doesn't have the weight of a real rock.  We had high winds after putting it outside and it stayed in place.  Notice the great color that shows in the photos from the setting sun.  I plan to add a few more to my border landscaping.  This one measures about 30" x 28" x 13".

    LOVE this BACKYARD X-SCAPES 13 IN. H X 28 IN. W X 30 IN. L LARGE FIBERGLASS ARTIFICIAL ROCK COVER FOR LANDSCAPING IN RIVER BROWN. Lightweight easy to move. Strong. NO flex at all to the rock. Sturdy. Looks natural. Trying to decide if I want to cover the septic lid or a sprinkler valve box. So glad to have this lovely faux rock. Looks so natural and even has a crevasse where water collects on the top.. so natural looking. Highly recommend.

    This fiberglass fake "rock" is a great way to cover fountain wiring add interest and texture to your yard without breaking your back or your bank account. The rock is lightweight, so it's easy to try it in different locations. Unlike the slightly smaller version, this rock seems to have more variations in the color so it looks more realistic, but I think a matte finish would make it more realistic. It seems sturdy and is easy to move.

    This landscaping rock works well in my new perennial garden. The aeration system (our septic system) is in such a visible location near our garage and needed "masking " to improve the eye appeal when entering our driveway. Thus we've added a large perennial garden with lots of height variety while avoiding roots that would entangle in the septic system. We had moved in one very large actual rock, but this hollow rock is now placed over one of the septic caps. Great masking. Three in a row wouldn't look good but with plant growth and this landscaping rock ... the visual is improving.

    The Backyard X-Scapes Large Fiberglass Artificial Rock Cover is a neat addition to the landscape. It can be a neat cover for covering a wellhead or other pipes in the yard. The construction appears to be able to hold up well in the elements. It works well as an accent in the flower garden as a great back drop for flowers or just a neat addition to breakup a dull surrounding in the shrubbery.

    I recently received the BACKYARD X-SCAPES 13 IN. H X 28 IN. W X 30 IN. L LARGE FIBERGLASS ARTIFICIAL ROCK COVER FOR LANDSCAPING IN RIVER BROWN. This looks so real, if I did not know better I would think it is real. When I put in in the flower rock garden it fits right in. I'm so pleased that how real it looks. I was not sure where to put it but as you see in the photos I picked the right spot.

    My second fake boulder. Different design. The first one I have had outside by my pond for two years now and has held up exceptionally well, ugly winters and all. This one looks to be identical in regards to structural and aesthetic design. This River Brown model, now that it's in my hands, looks more like a piece of lava rock than something you would find around my area which is next to Lake Erie. It is attractive though and looks ok where I put it outdoors. It does have some nooks and crannies on the surface, that will not allow water to escape. So, I will likely store it during the freezing months to prevent damage. This rock is light enough where a good wind may lift it. An Average person can easily carry it with one hand. So, consider securing options. There is no place on this rock to peg it down.

    This “X-Scape” fiberglass rock looks like a real rock and is a good alternative or addition to using real rock in a landscape decorative scheme. An added benefit is that it weighs about 8 pounds and can be moved or relocated easily where a real rock of the same size would be too heavy. The rock is basically a model made from a mold of a real rock using fiberglass, resin and rock particles. The manufacturer represents that these artificial rocks are used in amusement parks, zoos and commercial sites for landscape enhancement and despite their lightweight are strong and durable. This particular rock is “river brown”. I prefer a beige color but the river brown is ok. The size is 13”H, 28”W and 30”L. It is hollow but sits “firmly” on the ground. The base can be blended in the ground with mulch or dirt with landscape plants and it looks like a real rock. The rock is represented to be weather resistant and the coloration includes UV protection from the sun. Time will tell how durable the rock will be and how long it will remain in realistic rock condition, but right now I am satisfied with how it will look as part of a landscape scheme and the fact I can move it as needed. Artificial rock is not cheap but the realistic look and ease of movement, and the represented durability make it a practical alternative to the real thing as part of the landscape. The same size real rock if purchased is also not cheap and would probably require delivery and much muscle to move around.

    I got this rock because I have a fairly big old open pit in the backyard that is a hazard and the rock fits over the pit perfectly. For as big as it is, it's very easy to handle and looks much better than the half empty pit with all the leaves, twigs and branches in it. This rock is also a brownish color instead of a grayish color, which, for me, blends in much better with the landscape.

    So first thing is this says the rock is 15 lbs., I have my doubts that this is half that. The shell is approx. 1/4“ thick fiberglass. Since it is sizeable and hollow, I think if there are strong winds this will not be around long, so I am anchoring it down. I am drilling 2 discreet holes and placing stakes in the ground then will run a stripped electric wire through the holes and stakes twisting the wire ends. It is strong in that it does not bend easily. There was plenty of room to fit my well water pipe that’s 8” out of the ground. Lastly it is very glossy it would look more realistic if it were done in a flat brown paint. I think it’s a nice concept but missed the mark with execution.

    Sure Looks Real! Check out my photos. It is made from lightweight fiberglass like material, but I believe it is heavy enough to not blow away in a storm. It has a thick and rigid shell that I think will also easily withstand all but the biggest hail. It looks real enough that I believe others will not be tempted to try and carry it off. This is a great addition to the stone I already have. While the price for this rock might seem high I have purchased real rocks, that had they been this size would have been much more expensive.

    If you are looking to add a large rock to your landscape without the cost, weight and labor involved in placing a real rock than this might be the solution. This one piece resin/fiberglass faux rock is lightweight, has realistic texture and cost less than the real thing. This isn't a boulder but half a rock that will lay flat and is hallow on the inside, think of it as a turtle shell like. The Mrs first reaction was to say it looked like a giant poop. It has an acrylic like sheen that makes it look unnatural in our yard. Unlike the online pics, there is very little variation in color, giving it more of a monochrome look. On the positive side the texture does feel like stone. I would recommend this product if it was not a focal point in your yard, but rather an element among vegetation in the distance.

    Not quite what I was expecting. The ad pic is a top view so this looks like part of a rock sticking up out of the ground and not an entire rock sitting on top of the ground as it looked to me online. Really it looks more like a pile of dirt than it does a rock as it actually is very much more brown than my pictures indicate and not near in color to local rock in our area. I really see me taking a can of different color , more gray, rock texture spray paint to make this more to rock in our area It's made of lightweight fiberglass and of course hollow. It's like a big bowl.

    This artificial hollow rock, constructed of fiberglass, resin, rock particles and then being painted with a UV resistant Acrylic paint has a very realistic appearance. We obtained it to cover a water backflow valve in our yard and it significantly improves the appearance of our lawn. At almost exactly 6 pounds it will be easy for the plumber to move and replace when testing the backflow valve. Should work well with almost any unsightly plumbing or electrical outdoor lawn or garden fixtures. It arrived double bubbled wrapped and intact. Brown color and contours are quite nice and blends in with our landscaping. Won't miss looking at that backflow valve.

    I just received and put the rock outside. They wrapped this very well extremely protecting the rock. It does look real and I like the color. It is made of fiber glass so the rock is light. I do not believe a heavy wind would blow the rock but it is hollow and you can put something under the rock to hold in place. If people believe the rock is real, they will never know anything is under the rock. I ordered two different sizes so you will see the same review for each rock. I like it.

    Well first off the thing was twice the size expected, it would a lot better looking as a gray Boulder,  the 3 pictures are  of the chipped paint, the inside of it and how it looks sitting upright.  Would be great if there were a few tabs to put tie-down stakes in.  Overall it is good for a fiberglass Boulder. Oh and it could use a little more weight. There's still something about that brown color!!

    The Backyard X-Scapes 13 in H x 28 IN w X 30 IN large fiberglass artificial rock cover for Landscaping in river brown arrived today. In opening the package the combination of fiberglass and paint of course there is an odor from the paint, etc. that is expected. This fake rock is the most realistic looking rock and it is relatively lightweight (maybe 6 pounds). The bottom, outer edges of this rock will be place in a 1"-2" trench to keep it from being blown away during a very heavy storm. This rock is made of materials that should last a lifetime. This rock will easily cover PVC pipes from an inground sprinkler system. The rock arrived with a missing piece however, after notifying the company they will send a replacement. Further the are researching the cause of this missing piece and are very supportive.

    Fairly realist boulder
    The light-weight rock is fairly realistic - the colors are not uniform giving it a more "lifelike" appearance. I like it 'cause I can move it around which would be difficult with a real rock. To me the boulder doesn't look exactly like the photo - it has more angles and a faint sheen, but still so much more 'rock-like' than the other options. Worth the extra money.

        I purchased this item to cover the septic lids in my yard. The dimensions stated would work well for my application. Viewing the picture, I thought this should blend easily into my landscaping. After unpacking I was shocked at the appearance. My best description was, That looks like it could be dinosaur poop. The paint was applied wrong. There was no color variations. One consolation was, I purchased this from Home Depot. The return was easy and painless.
