This trough garden was created because, "Nothing would grow well
in this area." The gardener was stumped as to the cause of the
failures until the homeowner said, 'that area was used for dumping
the kitchen sink and anything else -- it all went off the porch and
into this bed for at least 40 years.' Rather than replace the soil,
the gardener created a garden above ground in troughs made of the
concrete-peat mix called hypertufa.
