Juniper Forest hills Landscaping

Post  lnvinh on Tue Jul 21, 2009 12:35 am

In Holidays, on the road to the resort, I am very impressed when saw landscape of the forest on the mountain wall. Forest hills Landscaping is my simulation of what the impression that I have seen

Lovely! Where did you have your holiday?
Looks like it could even be a tiny piece of Welsh or Scottish landscape!

Nice use of modest material.
The rocks are well placed and really looks like a hill side.

Someday you might replace the pot with a slab or marble tray. I don't care for the lines on the pot - they seem to detract from the image.

A slab that picked out the colours in the rock would do it for me rather than a grey slate.

Nice composition - what is its size please? I'm assuming this isn't one of your superb minis.

Actually, I kinda like the tray it is in. The rough exterior and the color complement that stone and the moss.

Very nice composition.

I love this! Especially the arrangement of rocks and moss, but the tree placement is good too. Once they mature a bit it could be stunning.

I don't personally like the idea of a rock slab as a pot because the composition includes rocks. I find 'rock on rock' incongruous and jarring. It somehow challenges my suspension of disbelief if that makes any sense. Thinking a little more, it may be because in nature you might see trees growing on an outcropping of horizontal rock (ie a slab), or you might see trees growing on vertically oriented rocks such as in this composition, but you would never find vertical rocks plopped on top of horizontal rocks. I do agree that the current container is a little fussy and distracting, although the shape does complement the composition well. I would like to see a simple dark low walled formal oval of about the current containers dimensions.

how'd you get the moss? did you put it there or is it natural? If the former, how?

Considering where he is, he probably just reached out and grabbed some -- it's hot and humid there.

But moss is everywhere. Most of us probably have shallow pots where we grow our native mosses of various kinds which we move in and out of our pots as needed. This time of year, I spend a lot of my time moving it out of my pots.

My observation is this: To my eye, the rocks look like a mountain. That being the case, I see the trees as being way out of proportion.

Hmmm. I can see where you're coming from, but it's not how I'm seeing it myself. But then again, perhaps that is because here in Scotland I am surrounded by scenes like this one where stands of trees are perched on and around smaller rock escarpments.

Beautiful. This is the kind of image I had in mind for my larch group/forest. Would local (Lancashire) limestone be suitable to include in the scene?

I love it!
From "my" part of Sweden, this would be a typical scene. This could be taken from outside my bedroom window;)
Thanx for sharing, I might try something similar one day althou the quality may not be comparable to your composition;)
Just finding a suitable rock will require lots of searching the woods and mountains...
