An Appreciation of Stone (43)

Here’s some stove size and bigger boulders from a sand and gravel quarry.

Great color and character in some of these. The only drawback for this type of stone is the inability to grow moss.

Okay just because I’m feeling generous here’s another:

Some great character in those 3 foreground stones. Nice anchor for a wall or great wings on a waterfall.

  1. Tell me a little about the inability to grow moss

    disclaimer: I’m not a Scientist . . .

    My experience has been that moss does not seem to grow well/or at all on igneous stone(basalts), or any type of granite or mica-schist stone.

    I have seen moss do very well on all sandstone, no matter the area of the country, and even a little limestone-even though moss like acidic soils . . . but in the end moss with sandstone is the way to go.

    The above boulders don’t fit that requirement.
