Trees are one of the most important, and certainly the largest, living parts of a home landscape. Whether your landscaping is a small courtyard or 25 acres of fertile farmland, it is usually possible to include at least one tree in your landscape design. Since trees in nature are seldom found alone, group plantings often look best in landscaping if there is sufficient space. However, some species are so beautiful or distinctive that they appear most handsome in isolation. In the right position, such trees can make a stunning accent point. Landscaping with trees can contribute to the overall appearance of your yard. After all, landscaping with trees provides an element of depth to your outdoor living area.
