Rocks are used in construction to build buildings, roads, damns and a lot of structures people use. In nature there uses are pretty much the same as they are sturdy and pretty much indestructible in a lot of instances. Rock are used in concrete and pavement. They are a natural barrier and also provide protection from the elements. They are used to retain heat and also cold and are a great insulator for both man and nature.
