Boulders! For sitting on. For Picnics. For Climbing. For dividing the yard.
The large boulders used in this coastal landscape provide abundant seating around the fire pit while maintaining the naturalistic feel of the site.

Boulders can be mortared together or dry set, stacked or nestled without mortar. Many times it's the sheer
of the boulder that keeps it in place. When creating a retaining wall of any kind, remember to include weep holes, so moisture or rainwater can escape. You can do this by adding a smaller-diameter PVC pipe in between the rocks to act as a drain.
