Best sand IMO is pool filter sand. Inexpensive and easy to work with because of the grain size.

The first question was answered in your another thread.

You can use any material thats readily available to you for the divider. Its temporary and removed before water is added. Just be creative.


Free Chimonanthus praecox seeds. PM me.
