These trees can accent your yard and breathe life into the landscaping design with a pop of color that looks perfect with the white and gray pallet.

Believe it or not, the bare trees can become the focus because their bark will add texture to your landscaping. If you keep the lawn free of leaves, the simple beauty of your bare naked trees will turn heads.
