Please help with curb appeal
hello! We recently put in a fence and lined the inside with English laurel as we are on our corner lot and hope to get a little privacy as they grow in. Now WE NEED HELP determining what to put in front of the fence in order to soften up the look. I am fairly new to gardening (but we have a drip system ready to go to this area) and feel overwhelmed at the blank slate and pressure as our house is the entrance to the neighborhood. The span of the fence is about 120' around the entire house and we have about 12" in front of the fence. We live between San Francisco and San Jose (zone 9B) and while I would love something all white and lush (like white carpet roses) we do often fear drought. We would also love ideas for beds in front of house (see pictures), Any ideas? THANK YOU!!!!
