planting small shrubs and perennials...maybe an annual
I'm trying to come up with a plan for the front of the house. We had to have a tree taken down and the exposed roots were ground out. The front yard looks like a bomb went off. I'm going to plant grass in the fall but I want to do some landscaping near the house. I have about 3ft by 30ft area I want to work with...i may decide to make it a little bigger. I'm planning on putting border of some sort, stone or something, the filling the area with good soil. I want to plant as few small shrubs, irises, would like to plant another perennial that blooms at a different time then the iris and I was also thinking about planting small sunflowers...to ambitious? The most important parts are the small shrubs so there is something there when the flowers aren't blooming and the irises(they're my wife's favorite flower) Any ideas on what would look good together? Thanks for the help!
