Sounds like the rock companies are gonna be doing better than the landscaping ones now. Although recently the economy has been bad, I think we will see a rise in jobs for landscaping and construction once again.

Personally, I love landscape designs that incorporate different materials in mediums. That's why I think it's awesome that Utah's rocks are becoming a "new" resource.
