Need Help w/ Landscaping Front of House (PICS)
My husband and I moved into our first house last year. The front of the house is totally bare, except for in the Summer, when various bulbs sprout up. We are looking to add some shrubs to the front, as well as on the side. Currently, there are some Daylillies, Mums & Hostas, but still a lot of bare space.
We just don't know what to fill the space with.
Here are photos of the front of our house, and the side.
Click on the photos, and you can see a larger size!
(left side) Currently has 2 Hastas on each far side, and 2 Daylillies in the middle. These can be moved.
(right side) Currently has 2 Hastas on each far side, and Mums in the middle. These can be moved.
The front of the house has partial sun.
LEFT SIDE OF HOUSE:
Currently, there are 2 Daylillies in the middle, and I planted some Tulips and Daffodils next to them before winter hit. Next to each set of Tulips Daffodils, are these weird Daisy flowers that come up, and next to those are Mums on each of the far sides. Everything can be moved if I come up with a plan.
Has FULL sun.
Excuse my lack of landscaping layout skills. Here is a very simple mockup of what I was thinking of doing for the front.
The 2 green shrubs are Japanese Boxwoods. On the sides, there are Red Twig Dogwoods. Up front, are beds of Begonias, and in the back, a few red Cannas. I have also left the Daylillies, Mums, and Hastas in the mix where they already exist in the garden.
I'm not an expert, obviously, so any help in landscaping the front and side of my house would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!
