Plant / design ideas for ugly boring exterior
Please help I have a very ugly boring exterior I am trying to spruce up. I have to keep the driveway and concrete porch but everything else can go. I was considering doing a square flat cut stone (limestone,flagstone)flanking the driveway right to the street but the cost was too high. Now I am considering just replacing the existing walkway. Should I keep the concrete borders? Rip it all out? What type of plants would you recommend as the area under the tree only gets a little sun in the morning. Someone suggested a simple boxwood hedge all the way across the front, is this too boring? I would like something easy to maintain, and unusual. Any creative ideas ?????? I would really appreciate it as I am stuck !
