Landscaping ideas, opinions, etc on pics
See pics below first...
You can see the first pic is an as-is, while the second is a sketch I just roughed out.
Ive cleared out the area inside the walkway, but am now planning on redoing the area on the left as well.
That area to the right of the porch in about 9x9 feet tops. In the sketch, I dropped in a little tree. I need some help picking out what tree would work there.
Obviously it need to fit the space, but I'd like it to be not very dense so it's not blocking the window. In addition, I'd like it to break the plane of the roof line to break up the space, so mature height would be 10-12 feet tops.
Any thoughts on what would work there? I'm a bit picky about trees. Would be nice to get an ornamental...at least something that bloomed in the spring. I really wanted a magnolia, such as an 'Ann', but I think it will be too dense.
Also, if anyone has any other suggestions overall, it's appreciated. The rest of the landscape is a mix of boxwoods, azaeleas, some yellow grass of some kind, and assorted annuals.
