I like the naturalness of the trees, Eric, and with a bit of growth it will resemble a full size larch grove on a hillock quite near where I live.

As a matter of interest, do you plan to put any moss or small plantings round the slate base? I think a little would take way the hard edges of the slate where there are quite defined "crevices". But it could only be done in a minimal way so as not to detract the eye away from the larch group.

Like it.

I like it too, and agree that the slate "wall" needs some softening by moss or alyssum, or something.

I don't think I'd want to lift this one. What a Face <---- that's me and a hernia.

Very nice. My favourite tree is the larch and this looks very naturalistic.
How big is the planting aprox?

Oh, very nice, I like it a lot.

It's got a depth, a volume, that I find very attractive. The trees are less mature than Eric's forest, but I really enjoy the overall sight of this landscape, I find it very poetic, and the lines of the trees are very much to my tatse Wink

Eric, I really like the way you've put this group together. Very natural and a great perspective. Don't fancy moving it though.

That's beautifully done, Eric.

The slate (shape and colour) goes very well with this little forest but maybe it is a bit too thick: do you think it's possible to slice it down a little without breaking the whole thing ?

And maybe, I would straighten up the main tree a little...

I beg to differ. The more random angles in this planting, add to the charm and wildness. Straightening treees makes it look like forestry planting.

That's really why I suggested softening it down with moss or dwarf ferns or creeping small plants like thymus or sedum. I thought it was a composite rather than a single piece of slate which would allow a "layer" to be removed. But then, that's only my opinion. Maybe Eric is quite happy with it as it is.

Really starting to fill in nicely however you might want to start thinning out the interior a little looks a bit congested.Nice work.
