Landscape Necessity

MHI: What is one thing a landscape can't live without?

RHP: That is a tough question. It certainly depends on the landscape direction. I would have to say a canopy tree on one end, and then perennials on the other. Lastly, a landscape can't survive without its ability to please its users. When homeowners are pleased with their surroundings, they take better care and make it more personal.
