faux stone 'hypertufa' wall in BH&G magazine
If anyone happens to be around their local magazine stand, see if you can locate Better Home and Garden's "Garden Ideas and Outdoor Living" special edition, Spring 2006. There's an article in there about a woman who does "staging" for movies and such and she's now doing gardens in faux style with the same techniques. On page 106 she shows how she makes a faux stone wall from an existing cinder block wall. She's basically using a hypertufa mixture in the final step to create the stone look and the wall really looks nice! She shows how to prepare the existing wall and how to get the look. Worth checking out.
