Japanese style garden

there's a Japanese style garden downtown and we scootered around town yesterday looking at gardens and stopped downtown for the best burgers and beers so we HAD to walk around for a while so we checked out the garden again and this tree had the most amazing bark - silvery :) I think it was a birch but I don't know...

we have Japanese red maples in the front yard and have talked about planting bamboo as a screen between us and neighbors (may just have to straight up do a privacy fence though)...

but we've also started talking about one of those yards with local plants, grasses and bushes and mulch around that - less grass...which would hopefully mean less crabgrass :P and less water and resources...will take some considering...
