I've mentioned before that one of the fun things about being a landscape designer is the opportunity to discover interesting new products that we can incorporate into our designs. Well, here's another one. We just got contacted by Rockscapes of Canada Inc. and what they are doing looks pretty interesting. We haven't actually used their products yet so this isn't a testimonial. That said, we're pretty impressed with what we see. They are doing some pretty interesting things with faux rock designs for residential landscaping so we wanted to share this with you—if for no other reason than to fire up your imagination.
We think what they are doing falls under the "if you can conceive it we can achieve it" category. They use their faux rock in such things as…
- realistic looking rock formations
- natural stone waterfalls
- natural looking rock grottoes
- slate floor tiles
- stone stairways
- rock gardens
- rooftop gardens
- retaining walls
it looks like these guys can do just about anything that you can imagine. And, that means that we can design it into our client's landscaping solutions.
Here are some examples of their work.

A special thanks to Mr. Padraic Mangan for his assistance in providing information and photos about their products. Please check out their web site at: www.rockscapescanada.com. They show many more examples and also talk about how they make their products. It's pretty interesting so take a look.
