anyone know a good source for fake rocks in S. E. Ontario?
I am looking for something to cover my external pond pump.
I believe I posted about a place on Highway 24 near Ospringe. I was by there yesterday, and there were some.
Alternately, you could make some hypertufa. Martha Stewart types often mix Hypertuffa, which has peat moss, perlite, vermiculite etc. for aggregate. It is lighter weight and all... but its more for rustic looking garden or fake rocks than it is for serious projects.
Here is a link that might be useful: making hypertufa
I never new that there are fake rocks.I would be glad to have some,But I am not able to make them myself.I would rather purchase them.Do you know how prices shape? Are they more expensive than natural rocks?
Halaeva, If you know where to look, natural rocks are free. Come to me garden and you will see some,- all free. Of course, the fake rocks will be more expensive, as one is paying for someone to actually make them. Even the ones you make are more expensive as you need to buy the mortar. On the other hand, if you have the rocks delivered, they will be more expensive, as one is paying for the delivery. Economics 1a6.
Thanks jroot for your response,for invitation over your place in order to see rocks.I would be glad to do that,but I have a problem with transportaion and my health lately.I regret that.The info you're giving me are very valuable and I have learned a lot.My local garden centre is selling rocks and I will see it.They do delivery.Thank you again for your time.
God bless you.
