Making a Hypertufa Trough – Better Homes and Gardens

Modeled after ancient stone troughs once used to hold water and feed for livestock, contemporary troughs are made from hypertufa.

Hypertufa troughs are easy to make, cool containers for use in any garden style.

Beth Jimenez and Amelia Lane, owners of Lasting Impressions, in Raleigh, NC, will show you how to make your own inexpensive hypertufa troughs at home.

Once you learn the secret to making these containers, you may not want to stop at just one; a grouping of containers of various sizes makes a striking garden collection.

    Helen, I’ve wanted to make these troughs since I first spotted them in an alpine garden a dozen or so years ago~I did manage to purchase a few! They are a perfect way for me to have plants that need sharper drainage then C&L can offer. gail
