LANDSCAPE AROUND A SINGLE TREE. This is gorgeousa tree (just imagine it for a sec w/o the plants at its feet) that has been transformed by a variety of flowering and non-flowering plants, all of which appear to enjoy shade. The brick border, too, creates a defined space, giving it a prominent focus in the yard. @ its-a-green-life

Make it Wonderful with Water Use a fountain to soften the noise of a busy street or to create a pleasant background sound. Its easy to add a water feature to your deck. Tuck small fountains in corners where theyll be out of the way or use a bigger, bolder piece as a dramatic focal point.
