Re: trees and other design elements

Donna, the 20 trees I mentioned on my lot are not all 'big' trees.  The two
Silver Maples are at the curb in the hellstrips, so don't really affect my
lot that much.  The Norway Maple in back is large and dominates the center
of the back yard.  The dogwoods out front are both still relatively small
after 10 years.  Most of the rest of the trees are along the perimeter, so
their canopies aren't completely in my own yard.
