When you allow your yard to yield a lot of growth, I think you are doing yourself a real favor. Yards that are sparser tend to be a little depressing to look at. Admittedly, this is a pretty subjective statement on my part as I love to see a lot of growing things on a property. Same folks love to have open space on their property, and strive to make that look as good as possible. But the array of trees and bushes here is truly beautiful, and I love it. The steps leading up are a nice touch, because it implies that there is even more to see.
