Artificial rock has huge advantages and endless applications over real rock, both structurally and aesthetically.
Properly sealing the cracks between real rock to prevent cracking and leaks associated with settling is a difficult and
costly proposition. With artificial rock there are no unnatural mortar joints to look at and leaks are a thing of the past.
Any Size - Any Location
There are many locations where large boulders can not be placed but artificial rocks can be created anywhere and in any
Rocks can be built into formations and cliffs of any height without the “piled rock” look required by real
rocks to gain elevation.
The large “footprint” of an artificial rock eliminates the settle and squirm factor that causes waterfalls
to leak and edge areas to become unstable.
Add an overhang above the water level and give your fish an ideal hideout from predators.
A cave in real rock would be almost impossible and financially unrealistic.
Rocks can be built hollow or in seamless formations to create ideal natural looking plant containers above and below the
Easy to clean
Crawling around on a drained water feature made of real rock with pressure washers and other cleaning equipment can be
difficult without shifting boulders and sliding gravel.
With today’s stains color pigments and mold compounds artificial rock can be sculpted to look just like the real thing without the problems of real rock such as settling, crumbling, weight limits,
size restrictions and cleaning difficulties.
