Landscaping Advice Needed
I recently moved from the Midwest to Florida, and I am currently renting a house. I feel like it has a lot of potential for landscaping, but I am clueless as to what plants I should be using for this region. I'm not worried too much about the lawn, I really would just like something planted along the base of the house and in the concrete planter. The landlord lopped off the tops of the bushes that are currently growing (as seen in the pictures), but I am willing to replace those. A concern is the lack of gutters on the front of the house. When it rains, it POURS, and I'm afraid it will wash out anything I try to plant beneath the roof line. The house faces south, and the area gets plenty of light. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
