New Homeowner needs help :)
First off, I want to thank everyone who contributes to this site. It's websites like these that make the internet worth surfing :)
I'm a new homeowner with a nearly empty landscape plot. I've got almost no experience with landscape design and, by nature, am really not a very creative person. I'm really hoping some of you more experienced gardeners can help me generate some ideas. Here are all the pertinent details I can think to include....
I'm in zone 6a.
I've got no gutters so the runoff from my roof drains directly into the timber beds I've created. I've loaded the beds with Compost.
I can't be certain but I believe the plants that currently reside in the beds are 4 Azaleas(not sure the color), Coneflower, lillies, iris', a rose bush, and an unknown tree in the back corner.
I'd like to keep the plants that are already in there if there's a good way to incorporate them into a master plan.
I'm divided on whether or not I'd like privacy on the front porch.
