I just moved here to San Antonio and I'm going to do something with the landscape of my backyard where I want to add a natural rock fountain. Where can I find a bunch of rocks? any part of the outskirts in S.A. that would be the most likely to find a bunch?

All of the places mentioned in this thread are still the places I'd use if I were in the market.

Good place to buy landscaping bricks/rocks etc ??

You've got your choice of several different parts of the city to choose from with those options. The only amendment to that list I'd have is that the full name of the last place mentioned is "Stone and Soil Depot."

If you're hell bent on free, you'll just have to keep looking. Honestly, I don't think you can just go take rocks from anywhere. But I admittedly haven't, and won't, research that.

How hard did you look?

I looked hard, but thanks for the find Sapphire, Medina lake is on the other side of town- 30 miles away, and landscaping rocks isn't what I'm looking for. The guy selling them in this "http://sanantonio.craigslist.org/zip/3474040108.html" ad are just barriers for mulch, soil and sand. But again many thanks.

Yeah, owners of public land pretty much forbid taking anything. And if there's a pile of rocks on private property, somebody paid money to get it there, so they're going to have a problem with someone helping themselves to rocks.

When my neighborhood was under construction, the builder told us we could take as many rocks for landscaping as we wanted from their lots that were under construction. That's not a deal that I've ever seen again.

You said "outskirts of San Antonio" so it really seems like you'd prefer someone just bringing you whatever you want. Free delivery tossed in. You also said "landscape of my backyard" so forgive me for assuming you wanted landscape rocks. Good luck, dude.
