Skins are low-bodied stones, with a sawn bottom, which reduces weight and makes them easy to maneuver by hand. Often called cropping stones, the art behind incorporating Basalt Skins into a landscape is the complete subtlety of their presence.
Value is found in the modest design, as these rocks simply heave gently out of the earths surface, accenting the surrounding plants and other elements. Used for Japanese garden designs, decorative stone beds, water features, and carefully placed in any garden bed.
