Description of product– Desert Rose is a multi-colored crushed Utah rock. It has a purple/rose base coloring with tan, brown, white and other earth toned highlights.
Common uses– Pathways, decorative rock ground cover, and water features.
Common installation practices– This is a 1” decorative rock. It needs to be placed at 3” depth MINIMUM. For best results install a heavy weed fabric prior to rock installation to reduce weed growth. Use a skid steer loader where possible to reduce the amount of hand work.
Please Note– We Recommend that Customers should come down and look at product in person before ordering. None of the products are “washed” but they are screened to size, and they could be dusty or contain some fines. Also this is natural rock and with that colors can fluctuate slightly as digging moves across the different veins in the mountain. Therefore even the same rock over time may have slightly different colors.
