Nursery, landscape architect, and garden center professionals agree that rocks and boulders can greatly enhance any residential or commercial landscaping, but finding, moving and installing real ones that weigh hundreds--if not thousands--of pounds using expensive heavy equipment can be a time-consuming hassle.

That's why those who want the back-to-nature look of real rocks without dealing with the costs and logistics are today turning to fake and artificial rocks and boulders, especially for placement at today's suburban homes with smaller yards and restricted access--as well as many floors up in the city at increasingly popular urban green roof and rooftop gardens.

Some do-it-yourself (DIY) homeowner hobbyists attend classes in-person to learn how to make fake and faux rocks, or find instructions on the Internet, but most soon realize it's not easy to create a rock that is durable, affordable and realistic despite advertised claims by self-described experts to the contrary. offers 20 models of incredibly lifelike 50-60 lb. replicas of 800-1,000 lb. real boulders that look and feel natural because they're made from construction-grade cast stone which is designed to resist 9,000 pounds per square inch of pressure and endure a variety of climates with minimal maintenance.

Landscapers and garden enthusiasts use the rocks for beautifying residential and commercial projects while visual merchandising, exhibit and retail design professionals rely on them to create more natural scenery at retail store and trade show displays, restaurants, resorts and casinos, and other venues.

This video provides an overview of how fake, faux and artificial rocks and boulders are manufactured in a factory setting to accurately demonstrate the type of materials, equipment and experience needed.
