How To Choose the Right Size Fake Rock

May 24, 2017

Our artificial landscape rocks are irregularly-shaped, just like natural rocks. So, how do you choose the right size? When hunting for the perfect artificial rock for your project, it’s helpful to look at more than the measurements of its highest, widest and deepest points.

Here are a few tips to help you choose the right fake rock for your project:

  1. Measure the length, height and width of the object you want to cover.
  2. Look at the listed dimensions of each artificial rock and make note of the ones that are larger than your object. Visit our Artificial Landscape Rocks page to see all the rocks and their dimensions on a single page.
  3. Check out the photos of each of those rocks to make sure you like the appearance.
  4. Compare those rocks in the diagrams below to determine the best fit.

The graphics below display the outline of each rock’s cross-section. Use them to understand the curvature and height of the rock at various widths.
