    FAKE ROCKs out of boxes covered with garbage bags, then covered the boxes with chicken wire, then covered "rock" with about 3 inches of pigmented hypertufa (portland cement, sand, peat moss mix).

Started with a regular metal garden chair, covered it with chicken wire and concrete, and then added the mosaics.

Love this Do-it-yourself concrete ball cast in an old round decorative light fixture which is then broken off of the dry concrete with a hammer. I want to try this.

Hypertufa Pot: They used styrofoam sheets to make the form, covered in chicken wire, and covered with a mixture of equal parts cement, sand, and peat moss until the mixture takes on a gloppy, doughy consistency. This one has an open bottom to plant a tree in. What a cool idea!

Creeping Thyme Ground Cover: Prefers full sun but will tolerate partiant shade. Fragrant and evergreen. Drought tolerant and spreads quickly.

Concrete balls nestled in shade garden... in the PNW and other wet areas, these will soon turn into moss balls!
