The Gatz Rock Yard Story
Gatz RockYard, LLC was founded in June of 2000 by Kenneth Gatz and his partner. He bought out his partner at the end of 2001 and has owned the business himself ever since. Kenneth worked for years in the farming, oilfield and refinery fields before deciding to go into business for himself. He had great family support and it turned out to be a great business decision. It has been a successful 12 years, even allowing us to open a second location in 2006. We strive to keep our customers, vendors, and employees happy at Gatz Rock Yard, LLC. Our customers are the most important in our business. Satisfied customers seem to always return for more business. We sell over 2000 tons of stone a year on average and more than 150 loads of stone are brought into our yard each year. We sell natural stone to individuals and contractors for landscaping and home building needs. The stone is used for patios, pools, waterfalls, fireplaces, interior and exterior of homes, flowerbeds, walkways, and other landscaping décor. Our stone comes from Texas, Colorado, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Arizona and Mexico. We sell our stone by the weight - per pound or per ton. It can be purchased by the piece, on pallets or bulk. Bulk truck loads can be delivered to your job site for less expensive prices. Our landscapers and contractors are given discounts on stone they purchase. We can recommend landscapers, pool & home builders, and rock layers in the area. We can also give estimates to customers of the quantity of stone needed for their jobs. We hope you come visit one of our locations soon for all of your stone needs. We will strive to make your experience with us a great one!
