Perspective starts with the angle at which someone views the “picture”. It is said that your landscaping is a gift to the neighbors. If that is true, then, if you like the people who live near you, special care should be taken so that the view is pleasing and inviting. Because trees are the largest element on the property, perspective really begins down the street and the weight of each tree as well as it’s color and texture become important from a distance. Each tree on the site should be both shaped and sized to fit the area in which it was planted. This is where proper pruning and shaping come into play. We can help, in most instances, to create, or recreate, a balanced perspective both from a distance and within the landscape itself.
