Rock & Stone Disclaimer
Rock and Stone are natural products from the earth that are subject to variations in color, texture, veining, size and differing quarries. We would recommend that customers personally inspect rock and stone prior to purchase as differences may be apparent from example pictures on the website. Most stone is not washed in the production process and may be dusty and could include small, fine pebbles and dust particles at the time of purchase. Rains, watering and time will wash the dirt and dust and bring out the true colors of the rock over time. We cannot guarantee a perfect match consistency on our stone products, especially if a period of time has elapsed since the last purchase. Stone can also be subject to flaking and rusting over time. This is caused by minerals in the stone as well as freezing, thawing and moisture variations
All of our decorative rock and stone is versatile enough to be used in a variety of projects, so bulk ordering can save you a significant amount of time and money. Whether you need pea gravel for a walkway or you plan on landscaping with gravel in a large area, McCarty Mulch & Stone has an affordable stone solution for you.
