The trees in the background are all mature Oaks in the golf course beyond. Probably White Oaks, but I am not certain. The smaller Oak in the foreground is a Swamp White Oak.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

1. Rock walls and paths. The chance to look at your garden in the winter allows you to see what a vital role hardscaping plays in the overall backbone of your garden. These beautiful stone walls give a classic sunken courtyard feeling to this garden, framing the views beyond.
Jocelyn H. Chilvers added this to Rocky Mountain Gardener's December Checklist
Create outdoor decor that will carry beyond the holidays by using cuttings from your garden. Mix evergreen boughs, brightly colored branches, berries, pinecones and seed heads for potted arrangements, wreaths and swags. Not enough variety of materials to choose from in your own garden? Plan a cuttings exchange party with a friend or two.6 Branches and Berries to Spruce Up Holiday Decor

7. Use structural elements in the garden for winter interest. In the middle of winter, it can be hard to visualize a blooming garden. Large urns and planters, benches, rock walls and other garden structures will help buyers see the potential even in the snow.

Under a blanket of snow this landscape is at rest. However, this doesn't mean the gardener should remain idle. The following winter chores will keep your containers looking their best.

In developing your garden, think about how it will manifest itself in both the summer and the winter months. Incorporate stone wall and a mixture of deciduous trees and evergreens to create the perfect winter silhouette.
