Some computers can't open your embeded need some programs.if you make every computers to open the pics,you
first upload photo to any photo-hosting site.Photobucket and Flickr are examples . While at that photo on the site,
look for a link to "share." Then look for a way of obtaining "html code" (don't select the thumbnail version.)
Copy that code and paste it directly into your message here.

I recognize most of that...

You've chosen a lot of slow growing varieties and tiny shrubs, so it'll take 3-5 years for it to begin to fill in. But the design is nice, the colors are lovely, and the effect will be really quite striking.

My biggest worry is that I think the Chamaecyparis pisifera "Mops" may grow faster than the Acer palmatum dissectum, if that's what those are.... Depending on the boxwood(?) variety back there, it might grow faster than those, too.

I like how it's going to screen the back/side door from view, reducing any possible confusion.

One of each is never a good look but I think you have a good start. On a practical point I would remove two of the stepping stones closest to the door (you can get the the hose off the corner)and put them near the electricity meter for the reader to stand on.
