Rocks are always a necessity in landscaping your log cabin to complete that "woodsy, natural feel." As I mentioned before, we are electing not to use grass but want to incorporate mulch, bushes, wild grasses and rocks. What's even better is if they're free! Greg went "rock hunting" with our log cabin guest Jim this weekend. They came upon a side road that had been grated with all these great large rocks strewn about. I did think it was funny when they were describing their process. Jim would run along the road and put them in a pile, and then Greg would drive by to pick them up and throw them into the flatbed of the truck like a garbage man. But the end result is we have all these wonderful rocks! And we probably saved about $900. We are going to use these rocks to build into the slope where we have our mulch path to the deck.
