    Part 2 - 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).

    3 part mixture of Portland cement, peat moss, and perlite, make long lasting garden plant containers, fake rocks and boulders, stepping stones, wonderfully whimsical garden spheres and all sorts of decorative garden accents. It looks alot like lava rock, the peat moss eventually decomposes and leaves pits, the perlite keeps it light weight.

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

Hypertufa: Odd word for a lovely pot. Handmade hypertufa pots are easier to make than you'd think. Almost anyone can make them at home with just four ingredients -- Portland cement, perlite, water and either peat moss or potting soil. You don't need a pottery wheel, and you don't need a firing oven.

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.

This is who taught us how to make our fake rocks. Keith is fantastic and saved us heaps of money!
