After getting some bamboo from Cass Bonsai, I decided to start working on the shade section of the bonsai garden. My overall goal with the bamboo is to hide (year round) some of the structural components, e.g. pvc pipes, concrete footings, electrical cords, etc.
The stands are constructed differently than what I did in the main garden. Once the main garden stands need replaced or repaired, I will rebuild them with cedar tops as shown below. I decided to go with braces underneath for a refined, yet functional, appearance. Will let pictures do the rest of the explaining. More to come later!
