New and Need Help

kathy1700May 20, 2014

Hi Everyone
I'm new at both a forum and gardening. I hope someone with a little imagination can help me. I moved in this house not too long ago and as you can see it needs a lot of help.
What would you do? Only restriction is I have a Dwarf King River Birch and a Dwarf Burning Bush. Both gifts. I'd like to concentrate on the long strip along the sidewalk.
Any Ideas?

I would plant grass there.

I agree. If planted with things other than grass, the bed will seem confining and unfriendly. The bed is contrary to what a landscape bed should be doing for the entrance experience.
