<< the contractor here did not want all the same houses. >>

Donna, there are 12 houses on our cul de sac, 12 different plans, 12 
different lot sizes, 9 different builders.   All but 3 of the homes were custom built, 
as was ours.  Our covenant did not allow for identical homes/plans.
    My trees are not on top of each other.  I developed a plan to begin with 
but have gone much beyond the original.  I do plot to scale on paper before 
adding new plantings.  After I have drawn out my ideas, I place it in the 
kitchen where I can view it frequently each day before I finalize my plans.  I 
project the mature size so I have the full impact and it may chg many times before 
I have my final plan.    You know the old saying ' a picture is worth a 
thousand words'.   I don't always do this with perennial additions but they are easy 
to move. 
    I have been thinking I want to chg the walk from the driveway to the 
front porch.  For the past two yrs I have sketched this out many ways but I know 
this will be a great deal of time & cost so I want it to be right.  Currently 
it is a simple L shape but I think a curved walk and something other than 
cement or a comb of cement and something else.
    Another feature I really would like to add is a dry river bed which over 
the past 8 yrs I have sketched so many ways.  Nothing I have come up with yet 
do I feel certain of.
