This is a great, private yard that uses trees and bushes very well. I have always liked the idea of using trees and bushes for privacy instead of the fence, or in addition to the fence. The reason is that you are able to both increase the privacy of your backyard landscape, but at the same time keep things looking organic and natural. The flowers are also a nice touch, and this would be the kind of yard that would be great for picnics in the summer. I also like the deck in the back of the house, and the fact that it is a low to the ground style keeps you close to the yard.
