    Sprig ... check out Craig's List for a used cement mixer, throw in ingrediants , turn on switch, watch it go round and round. When you are satisfied with the mix, deposit the mixed soil in used 5 gal. paint buckets,( you can get them free from painters) put on lid, stack to heart's desire . When empty, you can stack the empties one inside of the other. :)

    Growstones are a substrate for growing plants that can be used for soilless purposes or as a soil conditioner. This substrate is made from recycled glass. It has both more air and water retention space than perlite and peat. Another property of this medium is that it holds more water than parboiled rice hulls.[1][2] Growstones appear to be a comparable alternative to expanded clay aggregate. (Wikipedia)

    Recycled glass!!!

    There for a moment I thought I might have a valuable and extractable garden product literally at my feet! But no, I just have an ingredient commonly mixed with cement.

    Sprig' , aren't you glad you came here first with your product questions before running off Pell Mell?

    who thought Cat' must have meant motor scooter for rolling until mixed up

    It ain't perfect, but I absolutely needed something that didn't require me constantly moving buckets/bins around

    I had a set of containers like that for recycling I believe. While they took little space and worked pretty well, they were not vermin proof. For storage, I would need something to keep pests out.
