About my DIY Hypertufa blog

If you do not know what is hypertufa (an amazing art of creating beautiful garden objects and ornaments like pots, planters, rocks, spheres etc. using portland cement, peat moss, perlite or vermiculite and some other materials), I’m afraid my blog is not for you. (You can google ‘what is hypertufa’ to quickly and easily find this out.)

The main reason I’ve created this DIY hypetufa blog is to share useful links where hypertufa enthusiasts (like me) can find (mostly) free information on how to make various hypertufa objects on their own – the DIY way.

Obviously, one can google ‘diy hypertufa’ to find many such resources directly as well. As a diy gardening and ‘tufa enthusiast, I’ve been doing this myself, for quite some time now (and like I said, so can you). The reason why I thought of creating this blog is two-fold:

1. Many of the results shown by google (and other search engines like yahoo, bing etc.) do not provide diy hypertufa information that is actually useful for practical purposes and (almost conversely)

2. Many websites/pages providing useful and practical information are not shown in the search results (not in the top 2 or 3 pages at least).

Over a period of time, I’ve dug out, vetted and collected a number of such useful and practical (but not easy to find) how-to and DIY hypertufa links which I intend to share via this blog. Most of the links I share will have either textual/pictorial or video information using which you can actually make some hypertufa object or the other.

I hope what I share here will be of use to other budding (as well as seasoned) hypertufa and garden art enthusiasts.
