Planting Suggestions

I have a customer that wants some shrubs planted around her new patio. What would be some plant type suggestions?

Tried to turn my monitor upside down twice to look at the pictures but each time something unplugged and the computer shut off. My neck wont bend upside down either so you're out of luck right now.

Depends on if she wants the patio hidden year round (evergreens) or low-growing bushes that flower in the spring, a hedge of some sort, does she want to include perennial / annual flowers?

Wants evergreens low growing with a few flowering perennials mixed in.

Are there deer? Deer love arbs, hollies, cyprus. They seem to not touch Mountain Andromeda, boxwoods, rhodies. They eat ivy too.

Deer do not come around. They have many beds full of day lillies

yeah don't hide the stonework plant some mountain andromeda(white flowers in spring) spaced 4 or 5 feet apart. Throw in a couple Inkberry too. Perennials inbetween, lots of choices there.

Some raised beds of perennials may give a pleasant 'terraced' effect to that slope... that would be minimal effort and expense , yet still dress up that area at least the width of the house...
Also forming lateral lines with some bushes, tall grasses interspersed with Pots and other structures... sky's the limit...
