Ugly Septic Tank In Your Yard? Wells, Vents, Utility Boxes? Here's How To Hide Them Easily! Its almost as if they do it on purpose. The contractors, engineers, builders and architects all sit down at a table and plot to make sure all the utilities in your yard are placed in the most obvious and least desire-able spots. The septic tank, perfect for the middle of the back yard. The water well head, how about a couple paces to the left of the walkway right out in front. Oh and those tall white vent pipes should go right there where the flower garden is going to be. And lets put the big metal utility box out front by the driveway. Ugly Utilities: They're In Our Yards And Built To Stay That Way! Regardless of where you live, all suburban homeowners are plagued by these utilities poking up out of the ground in the worst of all places. Adding insult to injury are the color choices. Bright white vents, baby blue well heads, concrete yellow tinted septic tank risers. UGLY! And it's not like a homeowner can simply pick these items up and move them to another location. Not a chance. They are all permanently anchored in the yard. Planting shrubs and bushes around these utilities can be done, but in most areas it is against the local building codes because by planting bushes and shrubs you are impeding access that may be required for maintenance, repair or replacement should something go wrong. Luckily, recent leaps and bounds in plastic resin molding has created an answer that is fast, attractive, and easily removed should utility maintenance be required: the fake hollow rock. That's right, the second generation of fake hollow rock covers has emerged and not only do they blow away what we've seen in the past from the standpoint of realism, but they also feature extreme durability and total U.V. Protection – which means no fading from the sun. This Is AWhole New Breed Of Natural Looking Fake Rock Covers That Really Do Look Real! Fake rock covers have been on the market for several years, all sharing the same less-than-realistic sheen and obviously man made colors and textures. Recently a company called DekoRRa pioneered and patented a molding process called “Real-Rock” that mimics the surface of real rocks to perfection. Tiny particles are infused into the resin during the molding process. These create a gritty texture with outstanding color variations and a matte finish that does not reflect sunlight and look unnatural. In designing these artificial rocks, DekoRRa took the sizes one utility at a time. Meaning they first looked at all the utilities that homeowners encounter in their yards, and designed each specific rock model geared towards covering a specific number of utilities. This allows consumers to find the smallest (and least expensive) rock models catered most specifically to their particular applications. Lightweight Design Makes Moving These Fake Rocks Extremely Fast And Easy! The lightweight design of these rock covers is a blessing and a curse. Easy to carry and move about the yard, you bet! But this means the wind can do the same, right? Not exactly. DekoRRa cleverly molds staking flanges into the base of each hollow rock model. One simply pounds the (included) stakes through these flanges and into mother earth. Walla, the wind is tamed, and the flanges and stakes are totally hidden from view with mulch or the grass. The need for these fake rocks is becoming a nationwide epidemic, so DekoRRa has added four color options to best suit ones local environment: Riverbed, Fieldstone,Autumn Bluff and Sandstone. Now it's easier than ever before to hide those ugly yard utilities with plastic cover rocks that really do look totally natural and real! For more information please visit http://rocksfast.com Utilities like septic tanks, well heads, vents, and utility boxes are total eyesores. And they always seem to be placed in the most obvious of places in the yard. Thanks to recent leaps and bounds in plastic molding technology there's a slew of new realistic fake rocks homeowners can use to hide these eyesores once and for all!
