Landscaping Along Sides of Two-story House
I am trying to finalize a plan for some modifications to our front yard this spring and am trying to decide what to plant along the two sides of our house. Below are some pictures to provide an idea of what we have to work with:
This is the current layout of our front yard with the exception of the weeping cherry (which we move to the right last spring).
Left side of house (north). There is approximately 10' between our house and the lot line. The house next to this is on a corner so basically our lot line butts up against their backyard. We have a gate on the backyard fence so we will still need a path to access the backyard.
Right side of house (south). There is approximately 15' to the lot line on this side. We plan on adding a gate on this side too so we need a path here too.
Planned layout to be implemented this spring.
Concept of right side of house.
On the right side three matching Japanese lilac trees, large viburnum, saucer magnolias or crabtrees have been suggested. On the left side three matching smaller viburnum, regular lilacs or burning bushes have been suggested. We are open to any and all suggestions. Thanks in advance!
