Geoff Hamilton, the TV gardenere of the 1990's, used a material he called Hypertufa. If you Google 'Hypertufa Planters' you may get some ideas to help you with your project.

Try the above link- Please let growson You know about your results-maybe with a few pics. The project sounds very interesting as I fancy this myself. Large planters are very expensive so this would make sense......hmmmmm...
