Blue Atlas Cedar used in a bad landscape design. Poor maintenance and plant care.

In the many years that I have been landscaping, the one detrimental trait I have seen in so many self proclaimed landscapers is myopia (2: a lack of foresight or discernment: a narrow view of something). I have posted a photo of a tree that within the past few years has become a crowning element used in so many landscapes. The tree is a Blue Atlas Cedar and it happens to be a favorite of mine. However, that doesn't mean I  implement it in every one of my designs. The reason ? This tree will grow to a mature height of roughly 40' and half of that wide. Now look at the photo. Notice the overhang of the building? Bad bad design. I see this time and time again all over the metro-plex and for that matter... all over the country. Looks and functionality must go hand in hand or it will cost you or someone else time and money down the road. Landscaping is not for the short term though instant visual gratification is hard to fend off. I don't expect  my customers to have in depth plant knowledge over a vast array of plant material-though some do! That's why they've hired us. We may not know all of the answers, but we have the resources to find out. And before we plant anything we make sure it's the right plant for the right spot. After all, you're paying for it. And for that reason we create intelligent design in an evolving landscape.
