Hi all! So glad I found this place!

We recently completed an addition to our home, and in the process of digging out the foundation, the contractor discovered 15-20 rather large chunks of granite. They are irregularly shaped, but most are about 15-20" "square" and 6-10" thick.

What in the world can I do with these? Would someone be able to "slice" them for me into something I could use for a patio? Do I just leave them whole and build a small knee wall somewhere?

You can make a small rock garden spot with those. Plant some creeping sedums and tall ones and other plants that prefer drier conditions.

I agree

You can paint some pretty fowers on one with w flat face with your house numbers or Welcome to my garden or similar
Don't squat with yer spurs on!

People try to turn back their "odometers." Not me. I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved

You can use them for your pathway.. Place the differently shaped granite chunks in your pathway and fill the gaps with sand..

A lot depends upon how many of these rocks you have. Can you take a pic and send it? I just got through making a raised beds with rocks that I had to go get and haul in here. I'd like to see how much you have before I'd make a suggestion.
