I wanted to create a "resort" type feel which is surrounded by an urban environment.

"VJPS, the two trees that flank the fountain are crepe myrtles. They are not in bloom in this picture but if you will Google them you will see that they are very pretty trees. A lot of people trim them back in February but I don't trim mine."

"Just love the simple, but effective design of your yard. Can you tell what the the two trees that flank the fountain are? "

"Margo, The trees that are lining the fence are Ligustrums. They are ever-green and they grow about 7-8 ft. tall. They can be pruned or not. I have not pruned mine yet. I do not know what zone I am in, but I live in Tuscaloosa, Al. I am honored that you want to use my yard as inspiration. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for the comment."

"Calvin, I love what you did with your yard. My yard size and shape is very similar to yours and I'd like to use your yard as inspiration to reno mine. What are the pruned bushes you have lining your fence? And what zone do you live in? Thanks, Calvin!"
