Hello, Wondering if there is a good place in SE Michigan to buy field stone in bulk? Planning to landscape my front yard and put in a raised bed (planting a conifer, which kind is TBD). I need the stones to be manageable (can pick them up)...not sure what size but the small-medium sized ones...like a little smaller than a soccer ball.

Have you contacted independent landscape/nursery businesses in your area? I've noticed several in my area have fieldstone stockpiled - they're usually with bulk mulch/soils so inquire as to their location....

Locate a free copy of the publication 'Michigan Gardener"- it's a wonderful resource for garden related businesses - you may find a local lead...Merlino's in Westland is a possibility......

A couple of years ago we bought cobblestones from Michigan Landscape Supply in Fenton. They have reasonable prices.

Depending on where you live you could try a gravel pit, a stone yard or a landscape supply place. There are some places listed on the "Recommended sources" page on our website at http://gardenatoz.com/market/recommended-sources/. That list is far from complete and will continue to grow over time.
