house-plant size balance

If there is one pet peeve I have, it's when people let plant size and especially height go beyond what I call the building size/plant size ratio. A group of plants that all reach the roof line look out of place to me. One tree or shrub can be a focal point but not all of them. I'm in process of clearing the entire area and starting over. I look for slower growing plants and those which are easier maintenance since things grow so fast here. I'm curious if others agree.
Before pic. Plant height is up to roof line.
