Are You Considering Using River Rock in Your Landscape?

River rock is one of the most attractive materials available in the market for any landscape project. They add curb appeal and offer a simple and beautiful solution to problem areas in any landscaping design. Traditionally, it has been the cheapest, most common rock found here in Colorado.

Unfortunately, at All Around Soil & Stone, we have been notified this year that there is a major river rock shortage. Due to an accelerated growth in the constructions sector, pits are running out of rocks. Many pits are being closed and also crushing all river rock down and using it for infrastructure.
