Landscape help with new construction
I need help and suggestions for the first phase of landscape on our new construction. I want to landscape in front of the garage and corner of the porch in between the walkway. I want to do it very soon. The rest of the house will wait until spring. We are located in Eastern Pa (about 1 hour north west of Philadelphia). The front of the home faces mostly west, slightly southwest. I like ornamental shrubs and was thinking some evergreens since I don't like it looking so bare in the winter. You can see below the walkway has a bump out near the center of the garage, between the two windows which gives about 8' from the garage wall to the walkway and about 6' wide from the wall to the walkway near the corners of the garage. I was thinking something tall and ornamental in between the windows. Something that wont get too wide and cover the stonework. My first thought was a weeping norway spruce and training it to go to about 6 to 8'. Then on either side of the norway, under the windows, something small and compact globe shaped evergreen.
Then some perennials mixed in around the shrubs.
I already have a dwarf norway spruce I got from a friend which is a nice ball shaped about 2' round that I was thinking of putting in the area in the same area but towards the porch end. would love to hear your suggestions.
