I have recently designed and built a mobile trough. The reason being that I needed gain access for maintence. The trough was made out 9'' x 2'' tanalised timber for the two sides, front  and base. The back  was constructed out 6'' x 1'' which was higher than the sides  and front. This was so I could fix lumps of tufa to it. This was all mounted on suitable wheels to take the weight.  Adjustable  shading/ winter protection was also  fitted. I am in process of forming a water system for when I away on hoilday.

Norman,  this is an innovative project.  Great idea to make the area accessible as you need - the tufa is lovely ( of course!) and the overall look of the trough is super - the shading is rather smart too.  I think it's a great idea and one you have executed well.
