forest hill planting

Post  Guest on Wed Aug 25, 2010 12:05 pm

hello friends in IBC, this is the forest i recently created on slab.




this group of trees was left to settled first on the slab for 5 months. just experimenting at first if the group of trees will survive and thrive on this style...and luckily it did. the most difficult to position is the cascade tree, need to be creative on the anchoring.



trees on the right side was grown as raft style, trees on the left was grown from another pot,oldest of the group im creating.



anchoring







forest hill almost finish, need more branch refinement...

Interesting design concept - the contrast between the upright and cascade is very jarring - it will be interesting to see when it fills in how it works as a design.

Also looks really heavy. A molded slab of concrete or fiberglass with a hollow hill might be easier to move.

Rob,

thanks.
it is pretty heavy. but i can still hollow out some portion of the hill rock from the back and underneath, i think it will add some more drama too to the composition.

Jun,
I have really enjoyed you contributions to this forum. You have some great material and fantastic visions. I really like the idea and overall look of this piece. Like Rob I'm not sure on the cascade, but we will see as it matures. But overall I love the composition and it gives me inspiration for a time when I have more space and skill. Thanks.

Todd,

thanks!
wel see if the cascade will develop nicely and jibe with the design. the important thing for me is that its stable now on its current position. it is way lot easier to remove the tree (if needed later) than to plant it on later when the roots of the neighboring trees settles.

Jun, you have created a believable hillside. Very realistic image. I, too, will wait to see how they all fill in before deciding if the cascade works. What is the species? Salut, Todd

Todd,

thanks.
those are murraya sp. mostly cuttings from unwanted branches of the other large murrayas that i have. they grow easily from cuttings even from the tip of the branch... notice the last picture above, the very small tree to the right side have roots already it came tip branch cutting too.

Thinking "outside the box" ! Very refreshing. I look forward to seeing this composition mature.

Thank you for posting,

after showing good growth I defoliated the forest. total defoliation for more matured trees and partial for the younger trees.
