Placement Rocks are rocks used as sculptural elements in a landscape. They can be used along as alternatives to plants, mulch or grass to add a natural, sculptural statement to any landscape. A placement rock may be used along a walkway or patio, in a planting bed, along a pool edge, in a dry stream bed or water garden. At Wicki Stone we are always on the lookout for rocks of unique beauty that can serve as sculpture. We stock a large and constantly changing inventory of placement rocks from modest sized to very large. It is a fun section of the yard to tour. Photo examples of how placement rocks are used in landscapes is shown below, as are examples of placement rocks in our New Jersey stone yard.

Placement Rock Definition, Description and Details

Full Stone Name

Placement Rocks. We carry placement rocks in many different types of stone including Bluestone, Karney®, Rainbow and more so you can specify Karney Placement Rocks, etc..

Stone Description

Stone picked for uniquely sculptural, colorful or even historical significance. Used as sculptural elements in a landscape. Unlike plants rocks will never die, require no maintenance and will last for millions of years.

Stone Color

Depends on the stone but most placement rocks are either some variation of gray our brown with the exception of Rainbow which has southwestern colors.

Stone Finish

Placement rocks are most often completely natural stone found in fields or quarries that are not processed in any way. However, we occasionally get historical architectural pieces like columns, pedestals, etc, that we display and sell from our placement rock areas. These pieces typically are sculpted by the human hand in some way.

Stone Coverage

Depends on the piece. Placement rocks can be very small and easily moved by one person, but far more typically they are large, sometimes very large and must be moved by a machine. So coverage depends on the piece.

How It Is Sold

Either by the individual piece (most often pieces on pallets) or by weight if you choose sculptural rocks from our boulder piles
