i think ive come up with an idea.. going to do Little gem magnolias in line with the down spots and near the entrance open areas, inbetween the down spouts will be a back row of Louisiana iris and row ow alternating knock out roses and Encore Azaleas.

If it wasn't for these stupid snow storms and lack of plant knowledge of the Southern region, I'd be all over it.

How abut some Dwarf Magnolias as a base and then work in some Hawthorns, grasses, and maybe some Loropetalum for diversity of color. Then throw in a few knockouts. Everything in this list is low cost and easy to maintain, which should be a plus since its a school building.

I got three exams in the next four days. Give me until Friday afternoon and ill come up with a good design!!!! Sounds like you want lots of color rather than big bushy type landscaping. Groupings of rhododendrons would look nice with mass plantings of day lilies and small perennial plants around them. Instead of a mulch bed, make an entire border of wild grasses and day lilies! Extremely cheap plants , easy to plant and ull still get the maintenance. Then taller trees along the building like a crepe myrtle or river birch, with fastigiata yews along the foundation .
