Give yourself a sense of peace and tranquility by decorating your home with bonsai trees. Bonsai, by definition, means a tree in a shallow pot. Asian cultures such as Japan have been using the art of bonsai for thousands of years to become one with nature. Whether you choose real or artificial for your decor will be determined by your skills.
Some of us like the art of bonsai, trimming, pruning at just the right times and giving just the right amount of water to get them to thrive are all part of the challenges with real bonsai trees. Many in the East have mastered the art of bonsai, and we highlight the word "art" as it is truly a craft that not many can master. Too many times people want to over trim the tree and that only makes it wither and die. Too much water can also kill the bonsai. To become a true master takes many years of experience and dedication to the tree itself. If you're like most of us the artificial version is just as good for decor purposes.
We carry a vast arrangement of artificial bonsai trees in our collection. Our designers have studied the real bonsai tree and their intricate details to come up with our line of realistic looking counter parts. Each one of ours has highly detailed trunks showing all the grain, texture and color changes of the real tree. The leaves are made in proportion to the size of the tree for an authentic look. You will have to touch them to tell they're not real. Take a look at our artificial bonsai trees by visiting the page below.

Many of our outdoor artificial plants, trees and flowers are hard to tell from the real thing as shown in the picture above. Typically someone would use these when they want plants in areas that are hard to get a watering source to real plants. Others want them just because the maintenance is low as all that is needed is to hose them off once in a while. As shown in the picture above, around pool areas are some of the most popular and when done right the look can be as natural as the real thing.
Most outdoor artificial plants are made from a poly blend plastic as they have to stand up to harsh weather and rain. Traditional silk plants just don't do well outdoors as they tend to fade very quickly. We carry a whole line of outdoor artificial plants, trees and flowers. Just click on the link to the left and take a look at our line.

Adding some shelving like the one above on a wall in your kitchen not only gives you the ability to grow herbs or plants in your kitchen but it also gives your kitchen a decor focal point. Whether you use artificial plants or real garden herbs this idea can give your kitchen a unique touch.
Wouldn't it be nice as you're cooking to just walk to your garden and pick some fresh herbs to go into your dish? This type of garden allows you to take a couple steps and shop at your own herb market that you created. This allows you to do this regardless of what climate you live in or what time of year it is. It can also be used as a decor piece by placing small plants, cactus or succulents to add some green to your kitchen. The sky is the limit with this great idea. If you have something like this in your home we would like to see it, so feel free to send pictures and we may feature it in one of our publications.
