Anyone care to help me with plant design/flower bed?

To be right up front with you, I don't know a whole lot about plants/flowers/shrubs. What I can say is I am looking for something fairly low maintenance. Something I don't have to replant every year. Perhaps something that blooms at different times so from spring through fall there is always something with color (maybe?). I don't want the window blocked for security and natural light reasons. That is mainly it.

I have heard not to mulch all the way up to the house because of bugs. Do you just put a narrow course of stone along the house, and then mulch out from that?

Also need to do something with that small triangle area up front. Thinking of filling in with stone. I can't plant anything too deep/need to be careful where I plant because of the drain tube coming from under the wall.

Thanks in advance for any help!

I've provided a couple pics to give you something to work with. I have nothing on the other side of the front door currently.

This is going to be the final design:
Toro Super Recycler SR4
Echo SRM-225
Husqvarna 570BTS
Husqvarna 435
