Landscape Design Help

kjreif(5)March 27, 2014

I have very little landscaping experience and I'm looking for some ideas on what to do with our front yard. We moved in not too long ago, and I have no clue what I'm doing! I'm in zone 5 and it has to be easy to care for. Anyone care to help me out with some ideas?

Where are you located and which direction does your house face? You should change your zone if you are no longer in zone 10.

Landscaping is about making things look better and many things cannot be seen in the photo. It's too blurry. Need a better one. Also need a shot closer (about half way up) of the main house area. Need a shot that explains what's going on at the left side around the corner.

Thanks everyone. I don't know why it said zone 10 - sorry. I'm in zone 5 (outside of Chicago). I'll take some better pictures tomorrow and post those.
