Go ‘Big’ in your garden, yard

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: BackyardExterior

Are you building a new home, or have you just bought a new house with a backyard lacking in personality? Are you even remodeling? If so, you should definitely start with a visit to Big Rock.

Big Rock is Hawaii’s leading manufacturer and supplier of the world’s finest Hawaiian cast-stone products for homes and gardens. Since opening in 1983, the company has spe-cialized exclusively in replicating stones native to Hawaii. It also is the only place to find the amazing Big Rock Hawaiian Stone Veneer. The veneers include Volcanic Lava, Moss Rock, Ocean Reef Coral, Blue Rock, Cut Basalt Stone and Ulupalakua Stone Veneer, which can be used to convert any plain exterior or interior surfaces into beautiful, permanent and maintenance-free stone walls.

Big Rock veneer weighs only a few pounds per square foot and is about 1 1/2 inches thick compared to heavy and bulky natural stone. Without lifting it, there’s no way to know that it is artificial stone. It is manufactured daily at Big Rock’s factory on Oahu by dedicated workers under the watchful eyes of foremen Kalani Viniegas and Ross Torres, both of whom have been with the company for many years.

Lightweight stone veneer can be applied to any and all existing wall surfaces outside or inside the home, and Big Rock conveniently sells everything you need to install veneer so you don’t have to run around to pick up additional supplies. If you have a project in mind, call or email Big Rock and ask the friendly staff to calculate what you would need to complete the job. Since the stone is made right there, your order will be ready when you need it.

You also will discover that Big Rock is Hawaii’s largest and most unique place to shop for a wide range of garden accents, including ponds, boulders, water features, waterfalls, stone benches, bird baths, water gardens, Buddha statues, ornaments and more. The company has almost everything you need to beautify your garden.

Big Rock’s beautiful Moss Rock Stepping Stones create a perfect path to welcome your guests, or make a distinctive driveway. The company has many lightweight waterfalls, which can be easily assembled and are perfect for an entryway or the backyard. Use Big Rock’s cast boulders and stones to create the garden of your dreams.

If you want to beautify your home or garden, Big Rock’s owners Bonnie Cooper and Brian Joy, or the amazing Lori Garcia, will encourage you to save money and “do it yourself.” With the company’s ready-made stone, it’s really not difficult, and the staff will explain and even send you home with instructions. If you don’t have the time or inclination for a do-it-yourself project, ask for recommen dations on some landscaping companies, as most incorporate Big Rock into their designs.

The best way to get a sense of all that is possible with Big Rock would be to visit the company’s rock garden and waterfall showroom — complete with veneer displays — located in Mapunapuna. Check on the web, or call for directions. The showroom is open every day except Sunday.
