Depending on how far off the road the house is.....think fire pumper/tanker/ladder truck.
Funny, first version of my post said pumper, but then I figured I would get corrected that they usually stay down on the road.

It's most efficient if the pumper can get within 200'. You can pump further, but time is everything, and most attack lines are set up 150' & 200'. Typically, there is 1000' - 1500' of supply line that can be dropped pretty quick, so the preferred method would be for one engine to drop a supply line on the way in and get close to the fire.

Most ladder trucks are 100', but may not be needed on a single story dwelling.

Do yourself a favor and lay a gravel or concrete pad down over a heavy sheet of plastic that extends about 6" beyond the outside perimeter of the boulder. You'll thank me later when you won't have to get out the weed whacker to trim up the overhang.

Need A Boulder Installed in North East, Recommendations?

Called "Planning and Zoning" and they said there are no restrictions other than check with the Roads Dept for right of way rules. Called the Cecil Roads Dept. and the guy said to make sure it is not on their "right of way". Basically said keep it behind the telephone poles and I will be ok

"Behind the telephone poles" is what we use to call in the field "an eye-ball guesstimate". I was a right of way agent for 30 years and for what you're talking about doing, I'd recommend a survey by a licensed surveyor.

large decorative concrete spheres. Like the ones in front of Target. You can mix and make in place.
Some other shape that would blend into the scenery, like domes or inverted cones.
These will require some periodic repainting every few years.

I like the inverted cones idea!

Painted green. You can string lights on them at Christmas time!
