Anywhere your project calls for large-scale fractured boulders, consider Kafka’s decorative rip rap your solution.

While it may seem like our boulders, cobbles and riprap are one of the same, it’s worth noting their differences. Kafka’s boulders and cobbles are naturally smooth, round granite stones. They’re glacially deposited granite in all of their multicolored glory. They’re only available in the mixed multicolored natural hues – varying between beiges, pinks, blues, grays, and whites.

Kafka Granite’s decorative rip rap, however, is made up of naturally raw fractured boulders. This means that our rip rap can have jagged or pointed edges as opposed to our granite boulders’ smooth, round edges. Our rip rap also comes in more than one naturally occurring color.
