Default Landscape rocks in Utah County

We are planning to do some yard work this weekend and would like to purchase a few large landscape rocks as well as rocks for flower beds. We are a little tight on cash right now so I am looking for a great deal. Any ideas?

I once cruised some new house construction sites and got some awesome ones for my mom's front yard. I just asked the company first and they loved it cause it was one less thing for them to move.

We grow rocks in Magna! Just drive out and visit any open field. You'll find piles of the rocks we all had to take out of our yards. All sizes from golf ball to volkswagon. Totally free.
Did you see my landscaping pics? We had to remove two pick up truck loads from our yard. The larger ones we kept came from right here in our yard. The Bobcat turned them up every time we tried to level an area out.

We did a google search on 'rocks utah county' and it gave us this website

http://geology.utah.gov/surveynotes/...scaperock2.htm .

This site will take you to a chart that lists where to go and what kinds of rocks are available. We had to go out by the airport and pay $12 for a permit and then, my DH went out past Eagle Mountain to N. Wiley Canyon and was able to get all he could haul away.
