What is the name of the tree to the left ? I am in the process of planting some trees in my garden for some shade. And need some ideas.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margie Grace - Grace Design Associates added this to 11 Seductive Landscapes That Lure With Less
The sumptuous curves of this garden draw you into the composition immediately. The charming arbor draws you in deeper and promises access to the garden that can be seen in the distance. But without passing under that arch, crossing that threshold and rounding that last curve in the lawn, you'll never know what's back there.
Lisa Frederick added this to How to Work With a Landscape Pro
Establish a maintenance plan. Once the landscape crew has packed up their spades and shovels, you're responsible for keeping your yard in tiptop shape. If you'll be handling the upkeep of your garden once it's installed, your landscape pro should provide an outline of what tasks to prepare for, as well as when and how often to do them. If you'd rather hire a gardener to do the maintenance work, ask the landscaper for recommendations. Some companies provide both services; check whether this is the case.

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: English-Style Gardens
Add curves. One of the hallmarks of English landscaping is the movement away from rigid geometric garden beds and toward serpentine shapes. In this case, the arch of the arbor leading into a secondary "room" echoes the curve of the garden beds. The use of plants rather than formal walls lends a cohesive feel to the entire space.
Debra Prinzing added this to How to Tap the Potential of a Big Side Yard
Two special details make this grand lawn feel more intimate, appropriately scaled to the humans who stroll here. The first appears in the foreground where two deep planting beds are outlined by low boxwood hedging, mirroring one another on either side of the lawn. Anyone who walks through this opening feels safe and welcome. This detail is similar to path treatments that vary in width, encouraging pedestrians to slow down and admire the garden's sensory gifts.The second curvaceous detail emerges in the distance — an arbor that acts as a doorway to the hidden garden beyond. This arbor's placement is successful because the lawn continues beneath it like a walking path — and plantings on either side prevent anyone from side-stepping the journey.
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to 7 Ways to Design a Garden That Flows and Intrigues
Perhaps your hardscape is firmly established and not easily changed. No worries. Redesigning your bed lines to create more graceful curves will give your space that flow and intrigue you've been missing, allowing for a pleasing transition from space to space.
Donald Pell - Gardens added this to Creating a There, There in the Garden
Compressing space with trees, a gate or an arbor, as shown in this garden, can certainly entice one to explore the beyond. Not being able to see the beyond from every perspective in the garden adds excitement to the journey.

Check drainage Good drainage is essential for lawns as it allows water and air to get to the roots of the grass. It will also help prevent moss growing in your lawn. If your ground is boggy consider installing drainage coils.
