Thanks a lot for the information on the trees. My wife and I are getting ready to work on the landscaping at our new home. We don't have any trees back there currently, and it seems so barren. I bet that one of these Crape Myrtles would look great.

Where is the bench from?

10. Bench with a view. What garden is complete without a bench? Before positioning yours, take the time to consider both what you will see from the bench and what views you will have of the bench from elsewhere in the yard. Consider a view of a water element or vegetable garden, or position a bench at the end of a winding path that can be seen from the house.Tell us: If you could add anything to your garden, what would it be?More: Explore Your Garden Personality: The Romantic

I wonder what our gardens will witness in the future. I wonder what they will teach us about our actions on the planet, about wildlife, about plants. No matter what, make sure you stop to listen and feel your garden as you evolve with it. Let the garden teach you. Let plants come and go, and move around as you pay attention to what works and what doesn’t. These are lessons not just for a resilient garden, but for a resilient life.More: How to Find the Right Plants for Your Garden
Falon Land Studio LLC added this to What Do Landscape Architects Do?
Our work is about much more than just a good-looking landscape. Many of the landscape site plans and the landscape photos featured on Houzz represent beautiful landscapes. They are just a snapshot of moments within a larger design of a landscape that grows and evolves over time. When you dive into the designs more and look at multiple photos from the same project alongside the design drawings, you can start to see how they are fundamentally great places to be in. They may be great spaces in which to relax, hold a party, have a family barbecue or watch the birds. Landscape architects design for how people experience and use the space (called the program in architecture parlance). Creating a great experience is one of our primary considerations. As such, we are concerned not just with how a landscape looks and what is planted. We are concerned with how a space feels to the user. Intimate or vast? Cool and lush or hot and minimalist? Questions like these form the user experience and program of the landscape and are fundamental to the design process.

8. Seasonal change. Tap into nature’s own seasonal magic — the emergence of new bulbs in spring and leaves changing from green to red, orange and gold in fall — by choosing some plants for recurrent interest in your secret garden. If you don’t want to undertake larger-scale planting projects like adding deciduous trees, consider planting one or two containers for seasonal color. Plants like tulips, daffodils and other bulbs, summer annuals and perennials, Mediterranean herbs, and small-scale Japanese maples grow well in containers.12 Stunning Spring Container Gardens12 Fabulous Fall Container Gardens
Lauren Dunec Design added this to This Design Move Can Make a Garden Feel More Expansive
Add a sightline appreciation spot. The start or end of a sightline — depending on your garden layout — can be a perfect spot for placing a bench or pair of chairs to pause and take in the view. For sightlines that open to expansive views, place seating at the start of the sightline where you can look out over the vista. For sightlines that rely on narrowed spaces like a garden walkway bordered by hedges or a tree allée, a bench placed at the end acts as both an invitation and as a focal point for the sightline.MoreHelp Your Garden Hit the Mark With These 12 Focal Points12 Design Moves to Make Your Narrow Lot Look WiderBrowse garden benches
