Front yard landscaping help.
I really need some help with my front yard landscaping. The first attempt wasn't successful as seem in the picture. Everything can go except the big tree. I want some color in the spring, summer, and fall, but I don't want everything to be dead in the winter so maybe some evergreen. I will be replacing all the rocks with mulch and move the rocks maybe to the side of the house. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
I am planting to have a japanese maple right where the compost is now.
I am planning to get rid of the shrub.
