    Landscape Stones

    I'm building a stone retaining wall at my home. I want to use cut stone or something that looks like cut stone. I have been to the big box stores and all their stuff looks the same. All of it is basically dyed concrete. I want more of a limestone look.

    Anyone know of a place that sells specialty stone for landscaping? I'd prefer a location on the west side of des moines but if a place is highly recommended, let me know.

    Thanks.

    Have you checked with Rhino Materials in West Des Moines. I was there yesterday but will probably do the colored concrete SRW as it fits best with my budget. Didn't look for naturals because it doesn't fit within our budget.

    Try Iowa Outdoor Products on 86th Street in Urbandale. I think I've seen what you're looking for there.
