Hi Bill, what does "Your own grass" mean, do you produce it on your own? Needle-idea with grass is great, I should work on this!
Hi Treefreaks, now watch this. Dont be surprised how easy things go:
First step is to take a walk. In my case I found a nice bush right in our garden, not even knowing that it grows there!
Second is to take off the naturak flowers and leaves. Further you have to think about the arrangement: As natural wood mostly has its little branches in only one direction in might be necessary to arrange them in groups to get an natural "growtheffect" again. Try to estimate the needed heighth; usually they look better on the track when not too big. Remember: Once cut they dont grow any more
! Dont cut length of the branches in this stage, possibly take out one or another if they appear too tight. Like winterarrangements? Stop working here and plant them on track!
Now here is the stuff of desire: Heki #1671 middlegreen.
As the parts of the stuff are too big typically and leaves are too tight, devide it into smaller parts and take off overflowing leaves by pressing with the fingers smoothly.
Put them between branches like desired and fix them with a little drop of highspeedglue.
In the end cut off too long branches. Not really tricky or even magic, isnt it?
Dont they look great?
I guess I will post other trees next, have fun, Regards Jens (Kellerkind)
