Creating the Tahoma Garden Planter Using the Dry Tap Method

Concrete Planters Made by Dry Tap Method

All cast stone garden planters begin with a superbly prepared mold and a specially experienced artisan. The mold have an outer rigid casing that support the more flexible inner mold. The inner mold contains all of the ornamental and visual details that are so beautifully apparent in cast stone garden structures. The outer mold secures the inner mold and is composed of several pieces that are held in place with screws and bolts.

The artisans are especially familiar with the all of the details of the mold and the dimensional specifications for each garden planter. As the proprietary cast stone admixture is applied to the inner mold metal wires are added to specific areas of the planter. The dry tap method is used and provides the artisan with an precise attention to every since inch of the planter. The reinforcing bars paced are made of Grade 40 or 60 galvanized steel. Other additive may be added a selected locations to provide the planter with the highest strength and durability. All materials  and methods used adhere to the quality standards outlined from the Cast Stone Institute, The Portland Cement Society and the American Society for Testing and Materials.  In all, the production of these garden planters is both the result of expert science and a very skilled and experienced cast stone artisan.

I have learned, that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
Henry David Thoreau
