Very VERY few rocks weigh less than water (and float), but quite a few types of rocks weigh more than the 'average weight', so a rock about that big would weigh BETWEEN 8 and, say, 30 or so pounds, with the average closer to 20 pounds. That's a 'large rock' as opposed to 'a boulder' which is a 'larger size rock'.

Does rock landscaping attract bugs?

Gravel and other forms of rock ground cover stand up to heavy use. Pea gravel and other types of inorganic ground cover don't decompose and minimize the risk of such bug problems. Whereas wood chips, bark strips and plant ground covers decompose, and attract insects to the decaying organic matter.
