Bonsai Services

I am available for bonsai house-calls throughout Santa Barbara, Ventura, and LA Counties.

If you're a bonsai hobbyist looking for some help and guidance through hands on work and instruction with your own trees, or a collector looking to add new work to your collection, get in touch!

If you're a total beginner and want to get started in the art of bonsai, I can help with introductory concepts, material selection, and care guidelines. I even occasionally guide group beginner bonsai classes for corporate events and special occasions.

If you have bonsai that need repotting, and you're short on time or experience, let me help you avoid putting it off another year. I can guide nebari management, pot selection, soil media, and more.
