CONSTRUCTING A BACKYARD BONSAI GARDEN: PART 1

DISCOVERY BONSAI

We moved into our new house in May of 2015.  The back yard consists of a small, flat spot with a large ravine.  I (*cough* wife) wanted to have a designated spot for my bonsai that did not include our deck.  So thus, the adventure of building a complete bonsai garden, in our back yard, began.

This was our yard before the process began.  My brother in law, who works excavating, was able to come over and level out the ground to help drainage and level things out a bit.

Once the ground was leveled, I began putting in posts for benches.  The posts are reused fence posts from an old farm.  They have a lot of character and are still structurally sound. Because of the slope in our yard, I decided to do a stair step pattern for my benches (and fence too).
