Our ethos since day 1 is, if you find a rock it’s completely up to you what you do. You can keep it for a while (or forever), you can re hide it, you can gift it, you can replace it with your own design, you can share it, you can shout about it. Really anything!
There is no right answer here, but following feedback we suggest the following guidelines to hiding rocks.
Be respectful where you hide rocks; No graves, private gardens nor inside shops (unless given permission).
Hide rocks at a child’s eye level where possible.
Try not to hide in the grassy ground as lawnmowers complain.
