Suggestions for shrubs/plants to use in front garden
Hello! I am trying to figure out what type of shrubs or plants to put in my front garden, just in front of the front windows of my house. My husband and I tried holly with the hope that it would grow together in a bush that we could shape and maintain but, as you will see from the picture, that attempt failed miserably. We would like something that can be shaped so that it doesn't grow very high in front of the windows (a little is okay but we want to keep as much light coming in as possible). I was envisioning something like 3 identical shrubs evenly spaced across that we can keep neat (low maintenance would be ideal). We live in Ontario (Canada) so need to keep cold weather in mind. Any thoughts or suggestions would be welcome!
Sorry for the poor quality picture!
