Large area, no idea where to start!!
WOW! What a wealth of ideas and information here! I have a pretty large area that I would like to landscape and have no idea where to start. I live in central Florida (9) and would like something that is green most of the time but does flower in season. In my previous house, in Maryland, I had very good luck with rhododendron and azaleas. Lots of color and not a great deal of maintenance.
I donÃ¯Â¿Â½t see those plants at the local nurseries so IÃ¯Â¿Â½m not sure if I can do the same here. But that is the effect IÃ¯Â¿Â½m after. The area is quite large. The bed will be about 30 feet long and 25 feet wide. I would like to keep the crepe myrtleÃ¯Â¿Â½s but IÃ¯Â¿Â½m not tied to them. Advice on plantings, forming the beds and ground cover is greatly appreciated. DonÃ¯Â¿Â½t see where to attach photos but they can be viewed here.
Thanks so much.
