Adding in a background/scenery?

I've created this mansion image and I've almost completed the modelling and texturing part of it. Adding in the background is my weakest point. I've got a real habit of losing interest about this point but I think that's to do with not knowing what to do. I know I either want a line of trees to mask the horizon, trees behind the building or some mountains in the distance, I just don't know how or what to add while retaining high detail or atleast the illusion of high detail.

So far I've tried modelling a terrain with looked out of place and a sky dome that just ended looking stuck on behind, probably because it was.

So what should I do? More importantly what would you do?

Thank you all in advance.

Wasn't this based on a photograph? Maybe you should stick to your reference image.

I guess you could just place a stone fence lined with some fancy shaped bushes if you just want to fill out the scene.
