This article  should be informative and take much of the guesswork out of it for those who would like a decorative rock in their yard.

It's the " hold my beer and watch this" version for the person who does not drink.

Casey, is that about the size of the one I left for you to slow you down at plow day?  I can't see Alan missing that one!

The one in my front yard is 14-15 ton. I can't imagine the expense that one added up to.

That's "pee gravel". Gravel so big you can walk around behind it to---well you know where I'm going with that----

Neat story. I bet when the guy starts digging, he wasn't figuring on digging a full 2 sty basement.

Were you expecting it to have walked off or been stolen?

Is the one in your front yard native?

Are you sure that's the same one?

Technically, aren't all rocks native?

Dug it up at work sub-cutting for a bridge approach. 26 mile ride home in a side dump.

You never know if it was chipped up for gravel.
