Although some of our designs are inspired by the beautiful and classical styles from around the world, we understand today’s importance in employing American work force. That’s why we proudly make our products in the US! The Look. Purchasing imitation Stones Panels, Dry Stack and, River Rock Panels sometimes means getting a lesser product that looks fake. Sometime so, sometime quite the opposite. Our products are molded from actual rocks, stone, bricks, and coral stone. The products coming out of  the molds reproduce every single detail, of the stone and even the grouting. Most people don’t believe they aren’t real rocks, stones and wood until they tap on them. The tapping or knocking is usually followed by a “oh, wow!”. The colors are applied by hand to further increase the realistic look and avoid pattern repetition when putting panels next to each other. Many competitor’s products are sprayed with one color and simply sponged off.  Not ours! We carefully apply different colors, one by one.
