    Saikei and Landscape Penjing pics

It's more stable than the muck that we later use to build the walls.It works well to keep things anchored into place until the roots grow in. For muck, I add...

    Informative Saikei YouTube video

    Interesting composition. I don't particularly care for the method he used by affixing those flat slabs to the natural rock to cover the rootball. It's too stark a contrast and doesn't look natural IMO. He could have gotten better results wiring in the rootball and covering it with much leading...

    Saikei Masters In The US?

    Saikei is a passion of mine (even moreso than bonsai). I will admit that my perspective is sorta limited though, as I'm in California, and all of my experience has been with artists from California. Michael Hagadorn is an amazing artist and his pieces are absolutely stunning, but I would not...

    General advice on a Japanese garden

    30 years ago, it was a beautiful, lush Japanese garden. All of the plants were trained as bonsai and the garden was designed by a Japanese garden landscaper. Along the way, my parents decided the monthly maintenance was too expensive so my dad did it himself. After awhile, that task then went to...
