Help prevent a "plant zoo" and help with the elusive curb appeal
My sister just bought this house and asked me for some landscaping ideas for curb appeal. I am more the plant zoo/collector type, and my yard looks mostly looks like a crazy jungle. Needless to say, curb appeal is not my forte. I was hoping some of you here could give me a hand with that. I am looking for ideas so she can come up with a long term Ã¢ÂÂplan of attackÃ¢ÂÂ. I am not looking for advice on specific species of plants, but just ideas on layout and design using broad plant forms (shrub, small tree, groundcover, etc.. ) that will complement the house. Any ideas anybody has would be a great help, as if it were left up to me the house would eventually disappear in a sea of overplanted randomness.
