DIY Container Garden with Draped Hypertufa

One example of planted hypertufa container.
Planted hypertufa filled with evergreen and colorful plants.

Perfect for seasonal gardens and great for gift giving. You’ll create a unique, one-of-a-kind, textural container suitable for indoor or outdoor display. Hypertufa is a mixture of portand cement and aggregates. Saturated with a blend of portland cement and aggregates, towels are shaped, draped and planted. Containers can be spray painted to complement decor. Imagine the possibilities!
