looking for suggestions/plans/hints/tips on landscaping for my home. when we moved in we ripped up all of the overgrown foundation plants, and now we are starting to think about landscape design, the whole house is southwest facing in midwest michigan zone 5, out front is 5 winter gemm boxwoods, on the right is a dwarf japanese maple surrounded by 3 goldmound spirea. i intend to place a dwarf hopi crape myrtle tree in the nook behind it, as there is a dryer vent near it and its sheltered from harsh weather, with a dwarf hardy crape myrtle bush in front of the vent. i have 3 more magic carpet spirea i intend to place on the left hand side of the house with a bloomerand lilac bush/ a dwarf hinoki cypress somehow incorporated, but just thoughts nothing concrete, accents plants for shady area will prob. var. hosta, purple heuchera. please hit me with all your thoughts ideas/constructive critics.

No body can see your pictures unless you post them. Under the picture in photobucket there are URL's click on the one that says HTML. It will copy and come back here and paste. It will show up as writing but be a picture when you submit
