Now that you know how to take care of you trees, it's time to move on.
Confucius say " It is much better to have 10 quality trees in brown unglazed pots than 25 trees in colored glazed pots with no potential" Anyway that's what my Master tells me, but his name isn't Confucius, I just made that up, not that you could tell, right. Think pines and junipers.
You gotta build out man!!
Those benches are way to narrow. Depending on how much yard space you have.
I take up 75% of my yard space with trees. My girlfriend hates it because you can barely walk in the fall. I have many that are in training and they get big, like the Zelkovas. I have to have the space to grow out stock and so at the end of the year it is a jungle. I do not see you using that clump of grass in the foreground. Do you have more space anywhere else. I say BUY more trees, heck start a nursery.
Dude!! Build more benches!!!! They are cheap. I'll post some pix of mine. A few hours and about 50 bucks. I used pressure treated wood from Lowes. 3 2x6's with 1/2 inch between each gives a nice 8 foot long bench by about 19 inches wide. I used a couple of 2x4 underneath for cross members.
They are a bit heavy --but they are solid!!!
I agree with Hans, there is nothing crowded there. Just need one more bench.
Try to imagine for each tree how would you like to see them in five years. If you don't have a drastic improvement plan for a tree, than you get rid of it. For instance, if you need to double or triple the size of a trunk for a tree, than keeping in a bonsai pot won't help. You need to take a different action, and if you can't do it for some reason, then you shouldn't keep the tree.
