Creating natural height in a low fenced garden.

I live in a terraced house with a lovely back garden and shed.  The garden is split level with the main area at the top (all the houses have a similar pattern).  I want some ideas that would create some natural height but is not too overbearing (we like our neighbours).

    Can you post some pictures of your garden?
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    Does the garden slope up or down from the house?
    How long?
    How wide?
    Facing north?
    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
    If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.

    fastigiate trees (upright columns-rather than busy)
    or something light canopied like a silver birch or one of the cut leaved Japanese acers.
    or pleached trees
    or a pergola with climbers over it, i've seen it done with just upright posts and wires connecting them (with climbers over it)
