I have been adding weeping evergreens in my garden.  They add a nice contrast, and don't have as extensive a root system to deal with.

                                        Winter Garden

Most of us depend on  the evergreens  to make the winter garden. I have my
own list of favorite conifers  but they are pretty ordinary. I am looking
for some of the stranger and  more unique specimens which I might add for
the winter blahs. Any suggestions?

The one item I find that I would not be without now (especially for winter)
are the tall grasses. After a great  summer and a beautiful fall they still
look wonderful amidst the snow and the ice.  Along with the small specimen
trees (mostly pendular) they cast great long blue shadows across the crust
of snow on a sunny winter afternoon. Just looking at this picture postcard
stuff can keep me from shoveling for hours.

I am starting to see some serious two dimensional silhouette  sculpture
(usually with a black or metallic patina) for the winter garden in the
various catalogues. I am not sure how I feel about these things, but am
almost tempted to try a piece. Any experience out there?
