NY Good Questions: How Can I Make This Space More Inviting?

Pin it button big

Dear AT,

I am in need of some landscaping advice.

I came home yesterday to having my landscaping put in around my condo and I absolutely hate it (the 4 huge trees blocking the entrance).

My first desire is to rip them out and leave the place more bare with spiral trees near the door way...

This seems like a way better option to me, however, my husband and mom keep telling me the huge trees add privacy and will look great once the landscaping is complete.

Just curious for other people's comments on which they like better and what other ideas you have for making this space more inviting.

Thanks! Yelena
