Landscaping and nonlandscaping, with a concrete wall between them.
I often see this style of wall used for shielding people's eyes from views of dumpsters. And the woodland beyond it is just as ugly as a dumpster, right?

A trellis!

A trellis!
The climbing plants go up it, with a panel of antigraffiti as a backdrop.

Down there among the Sand Deposits are numerous cigarette butts and scraps of litter, but from this distance you can imagine that they are small flowers.

This picture is about my effort to line up the famous golden dome of the Dubuque County Courthouse so it would be visually framed between a rickety old fire escape and a utility pole.

I was glad to have gotten the idea and it was interesting work, standing here doing this.

Of all of the tulip poplars in the city of Welch, West Virginia, this one's my favorite because of the hope that it shall literally symbolize a future massive tree upon its site.

Liriodendron tulipifera is the tallest native breed of hardwood tree on the eastern part of its continent, so you're guaranteed to know that it's gonna be huge when it gets finished. I don't need to worry about the adjacent bldg because the U.S. is prett…

Heavy vine- and mortarwork for your parking.
Here's a parking spot that I might not mind using sometime — provided nobody beats me to it, now that I'm broadcasting its telephone number all up and down the internet. The vinework puts me almost-somewhat in the mind of a fishing net decoration on a pi…
