Hi Mike,
Your tree looks happy! I like the rock and think an older looking tree would work better. Where did you find the rock?

Hi Todd

The rock is a construction of several smaller rocks. I bought a big pile of these rocks about 20 or so years ago. Made a lot of constructions over the years. They are just about all gone now.

Hello Mike

Nice little combination with a boxwood and the rock/mountain is perfect.
But I have to say .... IMO everything is to concentrated in the middle!

Kind regards

Can you tell us how you construct these? Thanks

Hi Frank

First I find a suitable slab. Then I go into my rock supply, pick out a bunch, and then experiment with placement until I come up with an arrangement I like. Then, using epoxy or silicone cement, I secure the rocks to the slab.

The next day when the cement has become well set, I experiment with tree placement.
The arrangment of trees and rocks should be done in a simiiar manner as arranging a group planting.

Mike
