I'm embarrassed to even be posting this pic, but can someone help me photoshop (or whatever it's called) some plants, shrubs, etc? I was thinking of making a curvy border from in front of he steps down to the sidewalk along the driveway and planting with hostas and flowers. Also need help with shrubs (?) for in front of windows. Please let me know if you need more info; I'm not really sure where to begin! Thank you!

Notes on drawing. Can't see much detail where the red arrows point. (hope you can read my writing.)

RE: Help landscape bi-level/split

Thank you so much! I really appreciate it. I especially like the idea of the multi-trunk tree. That is an area I've struggled with. You make it look so easy; you must do this for a living. I have a hard time envisioning (obviously).

As a side note, how did you write notes on the image. I would like to do that but don't need anything so advanced like photoshop. I'm using either a Mac or ipad mini.

Anyway, thanks again! So nice of you to take the time to help.

You're welcome and yes I do it for a living. Paste a photo into Microsoft Paint then you can draw and write all over it. Better with touchscreen and stylus. Can't say what program would be equivalent for a Mac, but surely there's one. Also, various "paint" programs online.

For multi-trunk tree look for shrubs that can grow 10' height and have a personality you like.
