Begin of landscaping

Just bought a new home and the back yard needs major landscaping.
Bigger trees and water because land was partially cleared.

Where and how do I begin?

It seems that you are on the right track. The first step in landscape planning is to develop a feel for the look or effect of an area and its development. The next step is to decide best how to achieve the look and feel you desire. Formal or informal, shade or sun, long colorful beds, privacy, focus. All these things can fit together in a plan.

We have a berm with plants on it to protect us from the noise of the busy road as well to cut the view from the cars. At the same time it lends itself to providing a focus on the house, when viewed from the approach of the driveway. A development of of trees and a buffer graduated bushes cuts the wind from the north that used to buffet the house in winter.

This is a process to a plan. Take a look at what others have done and talk to landscape folks for more ideas.

Hope this helps.
