Grass as a bonsai soil topper?

sacampbell97August 1, 2014

I'm no expert here by any means which probably explains the question. But is it possible to use grass as a topper and keep it trimmed up? I was just thinking it would make it look really cool with nice green grass growing in the pot along with the bonsai.

Don't even think about it! Grass roots will compete for water and space and kill your trees... just not done. Ever.

Though grass would not actually kill the tree, it would make a difficult task much MUCH harder, but there's no law against it.

My only question is, where would you find a little wee tiny lawn mower?

Lol, I would just use scissors. I've grown grass in a small pot before and used scissors and the grass stayed small, but I see why it's unrealistic because of the roots and proper watering would be near impossible
