    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).

Fake Boulders- how to make rocks

This is hypertufa - and you can make all kinds of sculptures, pots, rocks, etc with it for the garden

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

INVERT A TOMATO CAGE in a pot, cover it with chicken wire, then fill with spaghnum moss on the outside, peat moss inside. Poke in Sedums, hen and chicks, Sempervivum, Echeveria, Graptoveria, Graptopetalum, Pachyphytum, Pachyveria and other succulents. You created a TOPIARY TREE covered with "roses"!

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!
