Staci how nice to hear from you!!!
Yes we had the tree trimmed up to allow more light for the plants, so now you can see the big branches.
I planted that Arizona Ash 41 years ago and it is an amazing tree, it covers the whole front yard but is light shade so the plants do quite well.
There are four major beds all different shapes with mulch paths in between and a large open mulched area in the center with a table and two chairs for relaxing and conversation.
This is the view form the front door;
and this is the view looking form the tree to the driveway entrance.
