I need flower bed design help! I failed miserably (pics)!
I need a lot of help! Our house was built 2 years ago and it's in one of those neighborhoods where every house looks like the next house. I hate that aspect of our neighborhood! When we moved in, I pulled out all of the landscaping that the builder had put in. I didn't like it because it was just the same old bushes that every other house had. I wanted my yard to look different. Now it's just a big mess. To make it worse, my house faces north so the foundation plants are in full shade half of the year, some sun for part of the year, and for 4-6 weeks in the hot, hot part of our Tx summer, they are in almost full sun. I planted azaleas as foundation plants, but those aren't going to work. Too much sun in the summer. I would love something along the foundation that is evergreen and I'm really liking dark green leaves. The roses in the front row are peach drift roses. There is plenty of room between the roses and the foundation plants for another row of something. I have already planted purple and deep pink pentas around the 2 trees in the yard and I want to add plenty of them in the bed too. I really would love to focus on the color purple as much as possible. Any ideas would really be appreciated! I'm in the Dallas area.
