Copper Plated Planters with Japanese Maple Trees Add Height and Interest to Landscape Design
Inside the home's front flowerbeds, designers added copper plated, raised planters that house Japanese maple trees that stand sentry on either side of the home's front entrance, adding height and dimension to the outdoor design.
A small, pruned Japanese maple is the perfect punctuation to Chip Wade's front yard landscaping. Compact trees are a great choice in both front and back yards.
Maple Leaves In Fall
The maple tree family is a large one, and it includes trees of all shapes and sizes. From broad and spreading Norway maples, to columnar red maples, to short and shrubby ‘Emerald Elf’ amur maple, you can find a maple to fit any planting need. Japanese maples are probably the best known members of the family, but we’re inviting you to meet other members of the clan. If you’re in the market for a tree, consider a maple. You won’t be disappointed.
Colorful Asian-Themed Garden With Japanese Maples
Turn your own backyard into a Zen paradise with a little elbow grease or, in this case, a great landscape architect. The look is accomplished with plants like Japanese maple, dogwoods, azaleas, ornamental grass and artfully placed rocks.
A wall of Devonshire limestone encloses the garden, emulating the shape of a traditional Tansu chest. The treasure within is just as extraordinary, with sculpted pine trees, rare Japanese Maples and a hedge of weeping cherries enlivening the landscape.
Curved French doors open up the interior space to the stunning backyard, which comes alive at night. Market lights strung from the house to the tree create a warm, romantic atmosphere.

Roses, butterfly bush, Japanese maple and a vine-swathed fence give this patio privacy and create a bright oasis for the backyard. Landscape designer Pam Berstler used four redwood posts and decomposed granite flooring to define a sitting area within the small garden.

Mediterranean-Inspired Backyard Perfect for Entertaining
The Mediterranean home seamlessly blends the indoors and out to create a space that's both family friendly and great for entertaining.

Red Party Barn Exterior With Back Patio With Square Fire Pit
Landscape lighting and mounted sconces illuminate this party barn's back patio area in the evening light. Black roofing extends from the red barn to create a covered patio section that then expands to an open area with a stone fire pit. Mulched sections are planted with short trees leading into the open yard.
Lemony Lace elderberry (Sambucus racemosa) unfurls chartreuse leaves with a lacy look. Red berries form when another elderberry is present for pollination. The red berries are poisonous to people, but make a great addition to a wildlife garden. The bush resembles a Japanese maple in the landscape. Plants grow 3 to 5 feet tall and wide. Hardy in Zones 3-7.
‘Beauty’ Japanese Plum
From late winter through early spring, ‘Beauty’ Japanese plum brightens the landscape with delicate white flowers. The white blossoms fade to form tasty red plums in midsummer, earlier than other plums. This small edible fruit tree grows 12 to 15 feet tall and 10 to 15 feet wide. Plums make a nice addition to the home garden. 'Beauty' plum needs another plum for cross-pollination; ‘Shiro’ makes a good choice. Hardy in Zones 4-10.
