Help with landscaping a small hill and patio pictures included
I built this patio with a sitting wall last fall, and now need to transition the surrounding area to match it. This particular area is on the south side of the house, in full sun, and the first picture was taken from the west. The next from the south. I intend to keep the low growing evergreen that surrounds the area. I plan on taking out the bushes that are in the area, and replacing them with something. I was thinking maybe knockout roses but have never grown them, so not sure if it would be a good fit or not? I would also like to change the wooden landscape timber retaining wall, but I am not sure exactly what to change it too? Also right now the area is full of gravel as a mulch, and I am not too sure about that either! I do have a sprinkler system, and I have my own water source, so watering is not an issue. Thanks for any help!!
