The Natural Beauty of Boulders
Boulders create dramatic impact in any landscape. Use them functionally to divert foot and vehicle traffic, or simply as the focal point in your garden or front lawn. These literal "monoliths" add a natural and ancient beauty to any project. From setting up a Rip-Rap wall, or using stones as a property boarder or natural fence. Egg Lake Quarry's Boulders will add a touch of wonder to your landscape that only a gigantic boulder can leave. Having a piece of San Juan Island's Billion year history adorning your property will make the neighbors green with envy and leave your guests speechless at sheer size of the earth's natural sculptures.
Our Boulders are removed from Egg Lake Quarry via a 200 class excavator. (Pictured below) This process not only removes Boulders but all sizes of Rocks, Stones, Boulders and Fines (Small granular pieces of rock typically smaller than 1 - 2 mm) Once removed from the Quarry itself, we sort all the materials according to size. Most (if not all) of the large boulders are never further treated and are ready for transport to your project upon initial excavation. Watching these literal monoliths roll down a hill when being excavated is quite an awe inspiring sight. To check out our current pricing on Boulders, please click here.
