Technique

Looking for a statement piece for the yard? An espaliered fruit tree might be it. In our yard, it's a pear tree but really it could be just about any fruit variety. They are surprisingly simple to create and can work in a yard of any size as they can be kept compact or encouraged to really spread out.

OK- I'm guilty of never commenting, but I just had to tell you that I'm obsessed with espalier fruit trees. My parents took a trip to Mount Vernon (George Washington's home) and said that there were beautiful espalier trees there. They have some photos here

Abbey, those pictures are amazing, thank you for sharing! I may be becoming obsessed. The back fence is looking a little bare...
