Place hardware cloth over the mixing container to screen out sticks and other large pieces from the the peat moss. If you desire a more textured look on the outside of the trough, screening is not necessary.
Wear gloves when making your trough; the materials are caustic to the skin. To avoid inhaling dust from the dry ingredients, wear mask protection over the mouth and nose.
In the mixing container, combine the dry materials—Portland cement, peat moss and sand or perlite.
