Flawless rock imitations

HR-082116-Big-Rock-2They say, “a rolling stone gathers no moss.” Well, that may be true for rolling stones, but Big Rock stones do gather Moss, under the right circumstances, and that’s pretty amazing considering they’re not actually real.

Big Rock, located on Oahu, has been in business since 1983. Co-owner Brian Joy had a vision of creating a company that manufactured Hawaiian stone, so he and co-owner Bonnie Cooper learned everything they needed to know, making sure that anything they made looked identical to natural stone. Today, nearly 34 years later, the business has become famous for its Hawaiian stone veneers including Moss Rock, Lava, and Ocean Reef coral and for their unique line of stone landscaping items, including Moss Rock stepping-stones and boulders, stone fountains, waterfalls and Japanese garden stones. The company also makes Buddhas of all sizes, Tikis, garden ornaments, and they have hollow boulders and copper rain chains.

For those not familiar with the way it’s done, the owners are constantly collecting new and interesting looking natural stones of all kinds from which they then take molds to create Big Rock stones. These duplicate stones are much lighter in weight than the natural stone, but look identical to those created by Mother Nature and Madame Pele. This process not only saves the island’s environment, but also makes stonewalls and landscaping projects a breeze to do. The stone veneer and landscaping items both have extended warranties and are of the highest quality.

This company, located in Mapunapuna, has a beautiful large outdoor garden showroom, and another inside. The rock is made daily by the hard working “Rock Stars” the Big Rock employees.

For customers on the outer islands and the mainland, Big Rock ships on a weekly basis and if you are thinking of covering a wall with stone veneer you may request a sample before you order.

The staff will also consider making unique things just for you; including custom made memorial stones for lost pets or loved ones. Big Rock takes pride in pleasing its clientele, and the staff enjoys sharing ideas with people that just “don’t know where to start.”
