When the design calls for rocks ...
call Rock Designs®.
Creating a rockscape isn't as easy as it might look. Our rock artists are
highly skilled in all of the major artificial rockwork methods:
|"Positive" rockwork is made on the job site by hand, from
steel-reinforced concrete that is then hand-carved and textured to look
similar to real rock. |
|"Negative" rock is the name for rock castings that are made from
molds of real rock. This type of rockwork is also called "GFRC" (glass-fiber reinforced concrete),
boulders and fractured sheer rock-face panels|
|Embossing with hand tools and
imprinting with textured skins is necessary on positive rock and also on the
cementitious joints between rock castings and panels so there is not an
obvious seam in the rockwork. These methods also help us harmonize
artificial with natural rock already in the landscape, such as on the barren
hillside in this photo:|
What can we do with rocks?
|Reliable expert construction of in-ground swimming pools,
spas and waterfalls.
|Dramatic remodels -- add pizzazz to existing pools and landscapes. Change
the shape of your old swimming pool. Add boulders, a spa, one or more waterfalls or
and a water
|Refurbish aging rockscapes with crack repair, re-texturing, long-lasting
UV-resistant color, and water sealant.
|Man-made rockwork is more versatile than cumbersome real boulders when
executing complex designs -- that's why the major resort hotels use man-made
rockwork for their water features.|
|Design solutions for problem sites and hillsides.
|Residential, commercial, resort and zoo projects.|
