The exquisiteness of the English Garden Troughs adds an aged appeal to the old English Garden emphasizing the natural theme that blends in and complements the natural surroundings. These beautiful and durable English Garden Troughs are made in a concrete material referred to as Hypertufa, and now Tabby.
Hypertufa It was first created in the mid-19th century by mixing sand, peat moss, sand, vermiculite and cement. It’s relatively lightweight compared to stone or concrete and no matter how cold your winter temperatures may get its freeze proof.
Tabby, called ‘coastal concrete’ was popular building material with early settlers along the southern coast of the U.S. Having no natural stone or soil appropriate for brickmaking, these industrious residents used available oyster shell and sand to create beautiful and durable structures that stand today.
