Here is my vision...
My husband and I have recently purchased our first home. There is a shrub bed outside and I'm most certainly digging them up and starting from scratch. I've done my research on how to prepare my bed, but my question is, in someone's professional opinion, would the plants that I have picked out compliment each other?
Here is what I love:
boxwood green velvet
dwarf red barberry
gold mound spirea
spiral junipers (a couple for height and accent)
And then I was wanting to throw in some seasonal pansies for a splash of color.
I hate to spend the money on these plants if they don't compliment each other and I'm definitely a newbie when it comes to gardening so I was hoping someone could give me some insight as to what they think about putting all (or most) of these plants together in a bed. The bed is approximately 10 ft in length and 5 ft in depth. I definitely want short shrubs so that I can see over them when I sit on my front porch (this bed follows the line of the front porch). There is a walkway that divides the large planting area (described above) and a much smaller area where a small dead shrub currently resides. Any and all comments are greatly appreciated!!
