These before and after photos come from a house we owned before. In the picture Before, notice the wall around the front of the house. When we bought the house all the neighbors we met asked what we thought of the wall. We removed the wall and created a small yard. Balance, rhythm, unit and form. Here is another "before" image from a different angle. We went down the wall, removed a dead ash tree and cut down the trees. This has created a lot more light inside and out. You are the artist here and the landscape is your canvas. Think about where you want the eye to move. Understanding terms like annual, perennial, deciduous, espalier, hybrid, spread and rhizome will prevent you from making costly mistakes.
