Definition of hyper-tufa

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by mwhit:

Manmade material used to make garden containers that resemble old stone troughs. A mixture of Portland cement, peat moss and builder's sand plus water in equal amounts, molded over a form and cured.

Definition as written by Wingnut:

Another recipe contains equal parts peat, perlite and cement mixed with enough water to make a thick, but workable mixture. Use most anything for a form (large kitchen bowls, heavy cardboard boxes, etc.), cover it with a plastic garbage bag (so the pot slips off the form easy), put a relatively thin layer of the mixture on it, cover with chicken wire (forming it to the hypertufa and trimming), then add more hupertufa. Let it cure and slip it off the form. If you do a websearch for "hypertuffa" or "hypertufa" or "hyper-tufa", you should come back with many sites with more info and helpful hints.
