I agree with Carlson and the designer landscape approach. In class, we discussed how different the row of mansions on Turkeyfoot looks because of its surroundings. They look out of place because none of the buildings around it are as large as they are. It got me to think about if I took certain things out of my landscape and placed them somewhere else, how different they would be. For example, if I took the lamp post outside my house that is in my front yard and placed it in the middle of a yard that was 100 acres, it would look totally different. The lamp seems to fit, like it has a place, right next to my driveway in my half-acre front yard. But, if I took it and placed in in the middle of a wide open field, it would have a new meaning and would not "fit in."
