Ideas for a large yard?

Zachary GierischJuly 12, 2014
My parents' house sits on a quarter of a city block and looks kind of bare. My mother's idea of landscaping is planting young trees randomly throughout and letting them die in the Texas sun.

The things that I have noticed about yards, is that it's fairly easy to come up with a design that fills a yard and looks great - as long as the yard is relatively small. What do you do when you have a half acre space?
