It's a system used today in modern sea defences. Large bags, like three cubic meters full of dry concrete mix dumped along the shoreline forming a wall. Mother nature does the rest, the concrete hardening and the bags rotting away leaving a lovely marshmallow perfectly inter-fitting storm proof concrete block wall.
Yep. The bags need to be strong enough not to burst.
No idea what the bags are made of, but they do eventually bio-degrade.
The motive is to provide perfectly fitting random joints without the need for precision pre-casting..
