Need design layout ideas!

kjpowell42November 9, 2010

Hi. I live in a tall dark brown corner unit townhome and looking for advice on how to layout the perrenials I have, and what other plants I should add to round out the design. It's the front yard and is basically a blank slate at this point. The space is 16W x 18L. The existing tree is a dogwood that buds white flowers in the Spring and that will stay. I purchasd 2 Otto Luyken Laurels, 3 Nandina Firepower, 2 False Spirea (astilbe), 2 Bleeding hearts, 3 Skimmia (1 male), 3 Euphorbia Martinii. I also plan to transplant Liriope and some Hostas from another area of my garden. How would you lay this out for the best curb appeal?

Spread your potted plants over the area, move around until you find a pleasing arrangement. Reserve the front edge for plants that cover the ground well (e.g. hosta) and I think you need to add a creeping evergreen groundcover too.
