In a perfect world all is in balance—it rains only at night, critters forage only on weeds, and dwarf trees grow only two-feet high. Then there’s the real world, where we aspire for perfection (or at least balance) in designing our garden railway. Look across the garden landscape or across the plan on paper and notice the profile of the landscape. Do you see rock outcroppings boldly reaching for the stars, spindly trees towering over buildings, or a church spire rising above treetops? The low lying, peaceful meadows entice us to stretch out and snooze, whereas tall exclamation points grab our attention—at least until the train trundles by.
