Partly collected thoughts.
I like the tree. Plum? In the picture, the grass looks as though it is suffering from drought in the summer, but presumably drought is not the problem. Here's a possibly interesting page I just stumbled across:-http://www.bbc.co.uk/gardening/basics/techniques/organic_lawncare.shtml
The tree is purple-leafed and is either a decorative plum or a decorative cherry - for some reason I can't ever keep that straight.
Oh, purple leaves - Prunus cerasifera "Nigra" perhaps, often confusingly called a cherry plum. It's actually a plum though - the pic looks like a plum because it's graceful, flowering cherries are usually pretty ugly out of flower.
