Clean Slate need Help with design

focusedonsoundApril 25, 2012

My wife and I recently (2 years ago) purchased a home where the landscaping was really neglected. Last year we started removing all of the overgrown shrubs and will be removing the rest this weekend.

We will now have a clean slate to start from. And would love to see and hear the suggestions here.

designoline6 Thanks for quickly responding. I love your renderings. I have posted a few more pictures (from left to right) to give you a better idea of how the property looks over all. (I can post a panoramic view tomorrow)

My wife would like to include some azaleas in the design.

Lastly - the plantings will need to be Deer resistant as we do get Deer on the property often. From landscaping From landscaping From landscaping From landscaping From landscaping From landscaping

Sorry,I am in other forum,don't find the your answer quickly.
I like azalea too,but it don't need sun light so much.You should tell me that sun light time(or where face?) and climate and soil PH.zone---z6? or local name.
Do you have any drainage and irrigation problem?

Why don't you post pictures of designs you really like? That way, people know your taste.

Designonline6--Why are you suddenly putting deep shade plants in the middle of grassy lawns? I've gotten used to your 12' perennials and your outrageously zonally inappropriate suggestions, but that's just silly.

@reyesuela: You don't need any envy.I can teach you some 3d.
it just some UN-RENDER pics(save my time),not shade plants.it exist here for three years at least.the owner like that I continue," I love your renderings. I have posted a few more pictures".Just you silly end that thread interesting.
Say " 12' perennial",that words is SILLY too.3d size is very different from angles and distances.
I wish that DESIGN forum have 50millions members,more people know it.it is a important condition the forum long exist.
