Although layout is important, the essence of a good garden is structure.  And the first and most telling features in any garden -- those which best create the felling of maturity and establishment--are such solid, three dimensional structures as wall, fences, hedges, pergolas and arches.  Thus, if lead time needs to be minimized on any garden project, the boundaries are an important element where effective change can be brought about very quickly, sometimes instantly.
