The six European Hornbeam trees you see in the above image are fantastic in fall and they add an element of order to contrast with the natural shape of the pool, and woodland below. Look up ” Columnar European Hornbeam fall color ” to see how they look in the fall.

In the above image you can see three sets of steps and a gravel path for the walkway, this will minimize cost and help you to get up the steeper portions of the slope.

In the image above and below you can see some tall plants and those are columnar Cedars, the plants below are Green Mountain Boxwood, and Rose Creek Abelia. I also put a Liberty Holly at the end of  the driveway on the corner.

The plants near the waterfall are Tamukeyama Japanese Maple, Serpentine Blue Atlas Cedar, Otto Luyken Laurels, and Nandina Filamentosa this form of Nandina is not common at all and makes waterfeatures look amazing.
