What trees/shrubs best for large corner lot?
We have a fairly large corner lot, slightly sloping, that currently has no landscaping. There were overgrown evergreens against the house, 2 white birch that came down in storms, and a couple giant yews near the Stop sign, that were all removed. We know nothing about gardening and are at a loss as to what to put in. We live in Zone 6b, about 330' above sea level, and the house faces North (no sun along the front to about 5' out). Also, dog walkers let them pee along the front edge, especially on any flowers set out near the street corner.
What kind of trees/shrubs would you put in front of the house? Would you put anything out on the corner (near street signs)?
Any advice is welcome! :) Thanks!
