Please help with suggestions- with link to landscape plan
We are completely redoing the landscaping to our house as it was extremely ugly when we purchased our house. We hired a landscape architect to help with our plans. We are going to start the hardscaping in about a week.
I am attaching plans and I was wondering about receiving some input as to what sort of plants to put in the short 30-inch wall area in our backyard. Our backyard is situated in a SE direction. We are building a wall almost the length of the backyard (back fence is 80 feet wide). The wall will be built approximately 8 feet from the back face and is currently slightly upwarded sloping.
We would definitely want to plant citrus trees. We currently have a very beautiful peach tree which is the center tree in the yard per the picture. We can plant several more trees- thinking about lime, lemon, maybe a kumquat.
What can I plant underneath to provide more interest and color?
On the very left of the plans, we are going to be having raised planters to have a garden. The plans show some bushes/hedges in front to hide the garden. What kinds of bushes/hedges would be good for screening this area?
What would you all suggest to put by the master bedroom (some green shrub, etc).
Thanks for your input!
