A couple weeks ago we planted seven arborvitaes that we bought from a nursery. To finish the look, we wanted to get some rocks to line the landscaping bed. If you’ve never been involved in a hands-on landscaping job, you may not be familiar with the cost of nature. One rock: $50. They go up and down from there, but I wanted to give you a perspective.
Now, not to sound like a Master Card ad or anything, in nature, rocks cost zero dollars. You just have to go on a little hunt.
We’ve taken to digging them out of the sand at the lake’s shore. You can get some really interesting ones that way. Or, near construction sites, often there are chunks of bedrock piled nearby that the crew is just going to haul away. That’s you’re opportunity to swoop in and claim them.
I’m all about the hunt. It’s fun and free.
