We are struggling with our landscaping behind out new townhouse (especially the types of trees we should plant) because it feels so close to all of our neighbors.  We really want some privacy back there, so planting landscape trees seems like the natural solution, but we have to make sure that they are not going to grow too large and bother neighbors.  Unfortunately I am nowhere near a gardener and really have no idea how to pick out plants let along maintain them. We have two narrow trees currently planted in the small grassy area behind the patio, but I am not sure what species they are.  If anybody knows what they are or different types of trees that may go well alongside them, please let me know!

Common Types of Trees

This design contract was a fun one because we were able to use all kinds of types of trees and plants to make the very foreboding looking mansion feel quite warm and welcoming.  As you can see, there were all kinds of nooks and crannies that required some sort of green element, whether that was boxwood hedges lining the retaining walls, or common types of trees flanking walkways. It was important to us, that the overall design had a very layered look -- both with color and with texture -- so that the home did not feel one dimensional.  After flipping through our book of tree pictures for this hardiness zone, we settled on these lovely mid-toned green pines that were not too large or small.

I have learned so much over the past few months trying to decide which types of trees to add to our backyard.  I definitely do not consider myself an expert gardener or landscape designer by any stretch of the imagination, but I do know how to research online and ask around to get good recommendations on varietals to plant.  This year we were in the market for privacy trees to line the back fence of the yard, more for sound proofing purposes than anything. All of my reading told me that thick ever green varieties would be the best because they fill in quickly and remain lush pretty much all year round.  That worked well for me, because I also like the the way they looked with my current patio landscaping designs.

Fast Growing Trees

I was wondering if anybody on here can tell me what types of trees this miniature Christmas tree looking things are? I don't necessarily like how they put them right in front of their house like this because I think that they will eventually block the view of the beautiful architecture, but I would love to plant them lining our fences all around the yard.  I know that they are one of the types of evergreen trees that grow straight up rather than fill out like a bush, but I can't tell if they are just new and have not grown to their full potential, or if they are a specialized dwarf variety.  Feel free to suggest other fast growing trees that look similar in shape and coloring, because we are certainly open to just about any idea.

Does anybody know what types of trees these gorgeous purple flowering ones are -- cherry, azaleas, hydrangeas? For weeks now I have been looking high and low for some sort of flowering trees to flank the entrance way of our house in the front yard.  Nothing that I have seen really has the color palette that I am looking for until I spotted these on a random pool design page.  I am horrible with gardening though, so figuring out species is absolutely beyond my abilities.  I am hoping that posting these types of trees with pictures will help me get some advice from very nice strangers on the internet like you all? Any knowledgeable landscapers on here that could tell me what these are in a pinch?

Does anybody know what types of trees those two red ones planted at both ends of this house are?  My internet searches have helped me a little bit, but without being an expert gardener that doesn't even need to look at leaf shape to be able to tell what it is, I really can't distinguish them from any other popular trees of the same coloring.  Based on my research, my best guess is that they are some type of maple tree, but who knows really.  We have a lot of evergreen trees in our front yard, so we want to add some small trees of a contrasting color to kind of break up the design and add a bit of visual interest.  This years home improvement project is going to be updating our curb appeal so the first step of this process is figuring out our landscaping situation.
