Many of the trees in this photo are not 'bonsai' plants, with the exception of the pine tree. It is trimmed yearly to maintain its height, but its roots are not trimmed. Trimming of roots is a practice that is used mostly for plants in containers, not in the ground.

The wall is constructed of wood framing with a top surface of cement plaster with an integral color. The integral color provides a softer, more natural tone to the wall that is not have the flat finish of paint.

The plant in the foreground is Liriope muscari "Majestic" or Big Blue Lily Turf. We specify the "Majestic" cultivar for its more significant blooms. There are numerous types of Lily Turf that are commercially available for you to select from, depending upon sun exposure, soil conditions, size requirements, etc. Also, make sure that the climate zone you live in is suitable for these plants as they are subject to frost damage.

The small maple to the left is an Acer palmatum dissectum 'atropurpureum'. It is a mature tree that has been bonsaid over the years to retain its 5' height.

It is a 1/4-1/2" pea gravel called "Pami Pebble" readily available in Northern California. The availability of decorative gravel will vary depending upon where you live as much of it is quarried locally. Depending upon where you live, there may be pea gravel of a compatible color range and size.

Is there a lot of movement using the Pebble? I'm looking for a stable material that won't track. Currently have DG which is messy. I like the material you have chosen for this yard! Beautiful!

The pine to the right is a Pinus pinea or Italian Stone Pine. This pine is over 40 years old and has been bonsai trained into a multi trunk character. Normally, this tree might be over 50' tall if not for the past pruning.

This is really beautiful. What plants did you use as ground cover? Blue fescue and liriope?
Kind regards
