What Is It About Virtual Rocks?

If you ever needed to hide an unsightly pump or anything else in the yard there are a few options. Some of your choices include:

  • Put plants or flowers around the object
  • Erect a fence around the object
  • Use a hollowed out manufactured rock

Using a hollowed out manufactured (synthetic rock) is a great and very easy option. Many new subdivisions have these throughout them covering up and hiding pumps and other garden type objects. Unfortunately, most of the manufactured rocks look cheap and definitely don’t look like a real rock. There is one company out there, however, making a line of synthetic rocks that do look very real. They are called “Virtual Rocks”.

The Virtual Rock Story (in the words of the inventors…):

We invented Virtual Rocks in 1999 and vowed they would be “The Best Manufactured Rocks On Earth”. Our Virtual Rocks have set the standard for quality, durability and most importantly, appearance. Shortly after we started we heard of a plumbing inspector who refused to sign-off on a permit because he couldn’t find the well. He was quickly informed about Virtual Rocks and their ability to hide things.

What Is It About Virtual Rocks?

Virtual Rocks Incorporated is located along Michigan’s rocky western shore. When a new Virtual Rock design is being considered, we search for a natural rock that has all the features we are looking for and a mold is cast. At Virtual Rocks, being true to nature’s creation has always been our first objective.

Each of our designs has been selected for its size and shape to cover the widest range of objects found in yards, gardens and pond areas. We have had countless satisfied customers who keep finding new uses for our Rocks.

At Virtual Rocks, our goal is to provide a natural solution to common landscaping problems by allowing our customers to Rock On!
