raised garden beds

greenlydiaMay 28, 2006

I want to replace my old raised cedar beds. Someone said they used concrete bricks stacked dry and then covered with hypertufa, adding some neat ceramic tiles and leaf inlays. Any and all advice will be welcome. I've never used hypertufa and frankly, don't really understand what it is. Someone, teach me! Thanks
