My plan for this spring is a large wall of stacked troughs where i can plant my herbs and salad greens (each one ca. 2,5`long, 1`wide and 12`` high). As bought troughs tend to be expensive I would like to make them myself and my research has told me hypertufa would be the perfect material. it is made of:
- 20% (vol) cement
- 80% filler, like sawdust, peatmoss, perlite, ...
- reinfocement of some kind
looks really good as far as i have seen, is said to be very durable, BUT contains cement, which i would like to avoid.
does anyone know of a good alternative?
must be rainproof, cheap, easy and fast to make and should survive several winters with many changes between cold and warm.
Thank you for your help,
