While this image does not show us a landscape design, it does show the kind of view that is possible from a backyard. One of the things I like to think about when it comes to backyard landscaping is what the world looks like form the back yard. If you have a view like this then you do not want to take away from it by installing a large fence. A scenic view can be incorporated into your landscape design as a design element in and of itself. I imagine this backyard as actually being a minimalist design because of the fact that the view is the star of the show.
