Lot Notes


As we seek to work with what nature has provided, rather than modifying our conditions to suit the trees we desire, Urban Bonsai’s become more obvious choices.

By using Urban Bonsai’s to create cool and restful colour schemes, the lack of the right climate is no longer an issue.

It is accepted that those bonsai trees often regarded as common are also successful within their environment and therefore generally easy to install - a very important fact as we take stock of how best to utilize the environment and climate.

The modern ‘architectural’ look, where Urban Bonsai’s are incorporated into the environment, makes a strong statement.

The distinctive nature of Urban Bonsai’s means they are unique - they are found nowhere else in the world.

By placing these rare bonsai trees in our environment, we contribute to their survival.

Through Urban Bonsai’s we celebrate the uniqueness of human technology.
