  1. Concrete can work great, whether it be shaped like the cylinders or in
    regular chunks. The main thing is to ensure you are digging to undisturbed
    or compacted soil, then give a bit of a ‘lean’ into the hillside. The
    bottom layer needs to be buried on both sides. Anyone local that has a few
    hundred of these cylinders, I’ll come and get them if you wanna get rid of
    them. John

  2. Hey’ya Cactus Gardener, I get the concrete from a local testing lab. They
    are cylinders used to test each batch of concrete for load bearing
    capability. Without me and others re-using them, they’d go to the landfill.

  3. Wow, it’s great that you live in an area where you can plant them straight
    in the ground. Texas rains and the winter frost can be a bit harsh on
    cacti. I love your terracing with the concrete shaped into cylinders. I’m
    planing to landscape my entire backyard with stone, and was considering
    various terrace options. Did you make the concrete cylinders yourself?

  4. Congratulations. I am promoting the use of nopales in all the poor
    drylands. How can I purchase some paddles ?
