Latest Update –
May 21, 2018
OK, so we already know that nobody likes reading these, so we’re going to do our best to make this experience at least somewhat digestible for the 1% of you that actually do make it through this thing. But first things first, welcome to the usrock.com official Terms and Conditions page! Whoo hooo (applause, applause, single tear, cough) We’re so glad you made it!
Now the Terms and Conditions you’re reading apply to this website, any services made through it, or any and all other online holdings (collectively called, the “Site”), that are managed, controlled, operated or developed by US Rock Corporation (to which we’ll likely refer to as “this awesome company”, “US Rock”, “usrock.com”, “The New Kings of Rock”, “The New Queens of Rock”, “us”, “we”, or “our” as is commonly used and deemed appropriate in the context of the use of words in the English language and/or in words in general in any language. If none of that made any sense at all, please consider anything you see or use online that has our logo and/or name positioned anywhere near it as the “Site” and subject to the Terms and Conditions stated here if that’s easier.
And now for our spooky and ominous warning……
The following Terms and Conditions (the “Terms”) explain the rules for using the Site. By visiting this website and/or any of the previously described holdings, you acknowledge that you have read, understood and agree to any and all terms, rules, or guidelines, that apply to any portion of this Site, without qualification or limitation (meaning you must accept all of the terms and conditions as written and without changes, got it?!).
The good news is that if you decide that these rules are too heavy for you, or that you can’t bring yourself to agree to them, you don’t have to use the site (that’s your out, courtesy of “us”). We would never want to force anyone to subject themselves to rigid rules or terms that they simply couldn’t stomach. However, if you do decide to use the site…you got it! You must (aka – you gotsta) play by the rules. Also, please keep in mind that we reserve the right to update and revise these Terms and Conditions at any time, and if we do we’ll adjust the “Latest Update” date at the top of the page so that you can keep track of changes. Now if we do update and if you decide that the changes are acceptable and you continue to use the Site, just like before, you’ll be subject to the revised Terms and Conditions by which continued use will constitute your acceptance of those changes.
If any of this stuff is too confusing or overwhelming, please send us an email here: firstname.lastname@example.org and someone who’s great at explaining this tricky complicated crap will get back to you.
US Rock Corporation specializes in supplying decorative rock, organic ground covers, and landscape materials (“collectively, the Products”) in bulk quantity (1 cubic yard/27 cubic feet or more). In addition to carrying an extensive range of landscape products, we also provide design and consulting services (“collectively, the Services”) for drought tolerant landscape development projects. We are the New Kings & Queens of Rock and our goal is to save you time and money by giving you the amazingly awesome option to buy in bulk.

Offer codes may not be combined and customers are limited to the use of a single offer code per order. Offer codes cannot be used towards purchase of non-branded merchandise, packaging or applicable taxes. For online purchases, the code must be entered in the ‘coupon code’ field at checkout. US Rock Corporation is not responsible for lost, stolen or corrupted codes or any unauthorized use of codes. Offer codes cannot be redeemed for cash or any cash equivalent; no substitutions or credits allowed. The dollar value of any offer code will not be refunded or credited back if any or all of the merchandise is returned. Expiration dates may apply to each offer code.
