what is under the stucco you used for the vegetable boxes? - I am concerned that toxic materials will come in contact with the veggies and soil--like glues or other materials in the stucco.

CMU block, stucco finish with precast double bullnose cap. You can see the issue with waterproofing or improper installation of, by the hard water deposits. Vegas water is highly alkaline.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

J. Peterson Garden Design added this to 8 Materials for Raised Garden Beds
CinderblockRaised beds made from cinderblock can be constructed in a number of different ways. Cinderblocks can simply be stacked to the desired height of the bed, or they can be mortared in place and then given a more elegant finish with a surface treatment and capped tops, as shown here. The former is much more rustic and inexpensive, while the latter is more elegant and pricier.Pros: Cinderblock is very inexpensive and widely available; you can purchase it at home improvement stores or building supply stores. It can fit a wide range of aesthetics, from rustic to urban to elegant, depending on the application. It's also fairly durable and will stay in place for many years.Cons: Individual pieces are fairly heavy, making this project difficult to do solo. Cost: There are a few different styles of cinderblock; materials alone cost about $9 to $15 per square foot. If you hire a professional and add a cap stone and a surface treatment like stucco, plan on triple that cost.
