Today’s subject is racking up multi-point screens– screens that include greater than one bonsai within a six-foot area.
This is one of the most typical strategy to showing medium-sized and also little bonsai, trees that depend on 8 ″ and also 18 ″ high specifically.
While it’s fairly simple ahead up with a system that makes up features intrinsic to a solitary tree (assume trunk, origins, branches, high quality of job, and so on) or screen (container, accent, plan of screen components), it’s one more issue to assess screens that include several trees.
Simply put, the suggestion is to consider every one of the components within an offered screen area.
We’ll be making use of a racking up system of 1-7 today. You’re cost-free to take a outright or loved one strategy to the evaluating.
In a loved one system, the most affordable racking up screens will certainly get ones and also the greatest will certainly get sevens. In an outright racking up system, 1 stands for the lower rate of trees you can think of and also 7 stands for the most effective trees you can think of.

What else to state prior to you reach the racking up? For one, the trees might look little in the photos. It will certainly be challenging to assess information of little trees in little photos, adequate layout signs reveal via to make the evaluating enjoyable.
One more point to point out is that the screen of tool and also little bonsai present is very conventionalized in Japan. That claimed, the essentials are basic: purpose to provide as much comparison as feasible in regards to tree design, dimension, and also types in addition to container (and also stand) design, form, and also shade.
