A bonsai garden is supposed to be a place a person can soak up serenity, peace and well-being. In addition to bonsai trees, most bonsai gardens also have fountains, pools, figurines, and ornate benches where you can sit and soak up the peace and quiet.

Things You Need To Do
A bonsai garden should be something unusual that reflects the quirks of your personality. Try to think of a landscaping scheme that reflects your personality and compliments your home.
The first thing you need to consider when designing your bonsai garden is the sunlight. Your bonsai trees won’t be healthy and flourish if the trees don’t get an adequate amount of sunlight. You need to make sure that you arrange your garden in such a way that every single bonsai can get enough sunlight. The unusual shape of the bonsai’s boughs makes arranging the trees interesting.
When designing your bonsai garden you need to pay special attention to the soil you are using. The trees in your garden rely on the soil to get the moisture and nutrients they need in order to thrive. The soil that you use in your garden needs to be rich in nutrients, and regular applications will ensure that your soil stays rich and fertile.
Too much moisture can harm your trees. You need to make sure that your bonsai garden has adequate drainage. Your soil should be well aerated. If you notice that a patch of soil is getting packed hard by too much foot traffic, take a rake or garden hoe and turn the soil over.
Indoor bonsai trees are happiest when they are growing in loose soil. Not only do you want soil that is nutrient rich, moist, and well aerated, you also want your soil to look natural. Careful use of grown vegetation, pebbles, and larger rocks can give your bonsai garden a natural feel.
