What Houzz contributors are saying:

Place trees for impact. Looking across the main pond, one can't help but notice a graceful weeping willow tree, its branches glowing with new spring foliage, almost touching the water's surface. To me, the lesson here is all about placement — when a tree is sited in the right spot, it looks natural, as if it has always been there. The other lesson is to admire a tree for its inherent structure and form. Nothing looks more unnatural than an overpruned tree whose owners are trying to tame it into submission.

Make water a highlight. In an ideal world, this water feature would be part of your English landscape. If you don't have a preserve in your backyard, it's probably out of the question. Still, a small water feature with a gently curving outline, edged with grass rather than stones or concrete, might be a possibility.
