Landscape Lessons From A 1920's Estate

Find the Beauty In Your Landscape


Diane thinks a lesson that applies to everyone is that one needs to carefully look at their property. Every setting has something that's intrinsically beautiful. In this case where Joe and Diane are standing are old tree roots. Diane used those to form a bridge to the path. Sometimes it's going out and looking at the light, the way its hitting the leaves on the trees. Diane was just looking at her property and noticed a beautiful Pine and Red Maple and realized the way the light filtered through the leaves was beautiful. She decided that she should never plant another tree in front of the those trees. So, go out and look at the sky, look at the ground, look all around and find something that really speaks to you. When you find that, enhance that. It will make your surroundings even more beautiful.
