Opinions on Professional Landscape Design
My husband and I just bought our first house and are trying to figure out what to do with our steeply sloping, West-facing, full sun front yard (Zone 7B). After a lot of indecision, we hired a landscape designer to come up with a plan (attached in link below). We indicated that we would like a large area of groundcover on the slope, and just asked her to come up with something that would eliminate the need to mow and look good for resale. I'm not sure how I feel about the plan -- it seems like a lot of large shrubs that I'm afraid will look unruly. I would really like to get some expert opinions on this plan. Would you suggest any changes, or is this a good plan? I would really appreciate any insight you can provide!
