Usually, the goal of residential landscaping is to make a larger space appear. A strong accent in the center of a space may attract attention and make the larger space appear larger (Figure 19 - 6). The vaults or tree structures above the head make the space more confined or smaller. Many back yards have an area of grass surrounded by a shrub border. The border brings the eye to a limit and brings up the confined space.

The reflection changes when the sun moves in the sky. As the planted vines fill up seasonally, one has the impression of walking under the gigantic changes of carrot lattice. Someone may even identify with a rabbit and wonder what it should be like to run in the garden without being detected. The space is going to be open to be closed. Figure 19-13 illustrates the use of a bridge as a major transition element in a garden. Transition spaces help set the stage for the adventure of being ine landscape and move from place to place.

It is a wonderful help, thank you! I am a total starter here, so when I came across your blog on PINTEREST, I could not wait to dive 🙂 I have a stupid question, I live in what we call a raised ranch its unique story with a high ceiling basement, So when you enter the front door, you have to climb 6 steps .. so high at home. I totally agree that the beds are 30-50% of the height of the wall. However, my side yard, where I look like a bed is incredibly narrow, and I can tell you now that I would be prohibited from planting something with height (like a tree) butted against the house. HELP ME. PS the area is totally bare, it is connected to two neighbors back, no fences and no landscaping.
