But in this head-on photo, my emphasis is more on the planting method.
Note how the plants spill over from the back of the fence to the front. This softens the look of the fence and gives the landscape border a more natural feel. Note also how the lawn behind is nicely punctuated with a couple of focal points that lend visual interest, without cluttering the lawn and making the chore of lawn mowing more difficult.
