Need design help!

libratravelMay 8, 2014

We purchased this home last Labor Day and now need help redesigning the space in front of the picket fence. Currently, it is full of wildflowers ( echinacea and others) that grew out of control. I want a cleaner look. The new picket fence is on its way and I was considering three endless summer hydrangeas; however I would be very curious what people recommend. Grasses? Ornamental trees? Also , mulch or river rocks to cover the weeds?

It is north facing however there is adequate sunshine all day.
