Looking for help/advice on starting my landscape project. I have a good idea of the plants and shrubs which I plan on using but design or shape of the bedding has me stumped. Attached are a couple pictures of what I have to work with along with a sketch of the area. I don't want to have the area just straight across, rather have shape to it. A japanese maple or a magnolia will be on the right corner of the house, so I need to leave room for it. Please give me your input or advise. Thanks!
