And OH what a Spring it is!

I think this was the longest winter I have ever seen in my doggie life.  Don’t get me wrong, I love rolling in the mud, and sitting by the fire.  But what I really love is a beautiful spring day, and digging up rocks :).  My favorite rock is Mexican Pebble.

* Mexican Pebble is a very smooth round rock off the beaches of Mexico.  My owners supply this product in multiple colors and sizes.
* Color is a power which influences our souls. The most popular by far is Black Mexican Pebble;  to me it looks more gray/black.   The Red Mexican Pebble; has a purple reddish hue.  And the Buff Mexican Pebble is a golden beige with specks of black and red.  Every choice is unique.
* Size, it’s not the size of the dog, but the size of the fight in the dog!  But our sizes for Mexican Pebble are 1/2″x 1″  1″x 2″  2″x 3″.  The 2″x 3″ is ideal for accenting river beds (and mix with cobble).  The 1″x2″ is most popular of all, plants, ground cover, water features.  The 1/2″x 1″ is a great solution between pavers or flagstone and ground cover.
* Do you want to go smaller?  We do have a Mexican  La Paz (3/8″x 5/8″)  and a Mexican Criva (1/8″ x 1/4″).  Both products are 90% black, with the remainder of red and buff mixed in.  Visualize the the pebbles smoothed and washed down naturally to become these smaller sizes. This would great as an elegant pathway for me to run on!
What ever product you choose, just remember, Happy Digging!

It sure feels like Summer!

Now when the weather turns warm, I think of tropical locations.  My master has turned my backyard into a oasis.  How so, you ask?  Why with Valley Rock products of course!

  •  Mexican Pebble ~ the perfect accent.  My master carries this magical pebble in  three sizes and three colors. So not matter your look, one of the Mexican Pebbles will compliment it!  Smooth and round~ Ole’.
  • Arizona Flagstone ~ Imagine the colors of the southwest…..conjuring up the look of Palm Springs.  That is the feel this natural stone will give you!  Whether you make a pathway, fire pit, courtyard or patio, this palette of color is very soothing!
  • Lava Rock ~ If you want to mimic the look a Hawaiian Island, the 3/4″ or 3/8″ black lava rock will do the trick.  Or if a resort in Mexico is more your forte, try the 3/8″ black lava.  You’ll be sipping on a Mai Tai or Margarita before you know it!

Just add you favorite colorful plants, the sound of running water and a cute dog…….presto = oasis.  Happy Digging!
