Boulders are popular for the impressive statement they create in landscape design.
These majestic rocks are larger and grander than your typical landscaping stones, and they offer colossal strength, quality, toughness and the sort of magnificence that comes only from nature.
We carry both quarry boulders and landscape boulders in a broad assortment of sizes, shapes, surface textures, and hues. So when you purchase through Southwest, the process becomes easier for locating the best boulders for the particular size and style required for your project.
Quarry and landscape boulders are not just elements of timeless beauty. They can also be purposed for various uses, for example:
Utilizing boulders is one of the fastest and easiest approaches to significantly enhance the look and feel of your landscape. And sometimes the placement of even a single impressive boulder is enough to draw interest to your home or business. Or, you may want to create a grouping to highlight a particular area of interest in your landscape.
Because of the intense strength and durability of our boulders, properties in need of retaining walls can greatly benefit from these lovable giants. The look of your home or business property is improved by their added texture and dimension while reaping the practical benefit of preventing the erosion of your soil.
Most homeowners wish to create a natural and peaceful environment for their home. So rather than opting for traditional man-made seating in their landscape area, some will instead choose boulders as the perfect choice for seating around their natural stone fire pits, outdoor fireplaces, patios, garden spots, or any other place people may want to find a place to sit.
Large boulders can be useful to redirect traffic in the direction you want it to go. There are likely areas around your home or business where you don’t want a visitor to venture. You can strategically designate limits with your boulders. And by doing so, you can usually encourage visitors along the preferred path you have defined. Their path will then have the feel of being natural.
Many of us have homes or businesses that may be a little more exposed to automobile traffic than we are comfortable with. Large boulders near access points such as play areas, parking areas or walkways can act as immovable sentries to provide a safety boundary to prevent a vehicle from going where it is not wanted.
Water Feature Highlights
Boulders can seriously upgrade the appearance of the water features in your landscape. Their inclusion may even inspire you to create new additional features that will improve curb appeal and increase property value. Landscape boulders are often chosen to introduce serene cascades and to line ponds, springs or streams, and for dry waterway beds.
Improve Property Value and Curb Appeal
With such a powerful combination of beauty and versatility, boulders provide a great choice to update and upgrade the curb appeal of any property.

We’ll be glad to answer your questions and to help you find the best boulders for your project and budget so you can realize your vision for your landscape.
Whenever the average person thinks about a boulder, they typically envision a gigantic rock. And even though it is true that there are definitely some very large boulders by pure definition, when it comes to selling landscape boulders, the sizes are more constrained. Consequently, it is often surprising when customers learn that boulders are technically any rock measuring at least one-foot in diameter. The average size for landscape boulders is between 18” and 36” diameter. These are sometimes also designated as one-man, two-man or three-man stones.
By definition, then, natural stone boulders are featured in all sorts of landscapes and spaces large and small alike. While expansive landscape spaces can be enhanced by the use of much larger boulders, lesser spaces will appear more natural and are less likely to be overwhelmed by the choice of smaller boulders measuring 1’-2’ in diameter. And in both scenarios, it is effective to mix and match various stone sizes to establish depth and dimension.
About Boulder Prices
One of the most frequently asked questions we get is, “How much do boulders cost?” Pricing for boulders depends on a variety of factors:
- Prices are usually going to depend on the weight of the boulder. So, since larger rocks weigh more, you can expect that your cost per boulder will be higher than with smaller stones.
- The price can be affected by the composition of the stone. Granite will likely be priced differently than limestone, and so on.
- If you require any modifications on your boulder, such as carving, flattening, or smoothing, you will likely incur additional costs.
- Shipping of your boulders will affect the bottom line, so be sure to factor this into your estimates and plans.
