14.In the prior photo we saw a wooden wishing well used as a garden accent in an understated manner. The landscaping pic above shows a wooden wishing well that gets all the attention in its landscape design. This garden accent is every bit as much the focal point as was the planting circle pictured in an earlier pic.
Because the expanse of lawn is much smaller in this landscape design, the wooden wishing well is able to serve as a focal point. Not even the tall trees around it can take away from its prominence. Closer to the street than the prior wooden wishing well, it just jumps out at you. The vines growing up it only enhance its appearance.
15.The landscaping picture above shows what can be done with landscapes containing garden ponds. What could be more natural than to design landscape bridges for your garden ponds? Landscape bridges are garden accents well worth considering, even if there's only a trickle of water on your landscape. They can be either functional or purely decorative.
But what if you don't have a garden pond on your property? Consider this idea: Artificial garden ponds can easily be created. Start off with just a small one, if such a project seems daunting. For some tips on this project, please consult my article on building small ponds. After you get the knack of it, you may wish to graduate to the construction of a garden pond large enough to warrant a landscape bridge.
16.The landscape photo above shows what beauty rose arbors can provide in your landscape. The structure of this rose arbor is attractive in itself but, in addition, acts as a trellis for the roses. Climbing plants such as these roses need the support provided by trellises in order to be displayed properly. If planted against a building, the trellis support may not be a rose arbor, but rather just a two-dimensional trellis or perhaps even just latticework.
Also note the exquisite balustrades used as fencing in this landscape photo. The creators of this landscape design obviously have refined tastes. The balustrades, as much as the rose arbor, proclaim to the world, "I am not a run-of-the-mill landscape!"
