What's your thoughts?

Got asked to redesign the landscaping at one of my commercial accounts. My thoughts is to use some Oakleaf holly trees or Crape Myrtle tress on each end. 3-4 Indian Hawthorn on each side and maybe dianelle grass or Aztec. Also add a little color to dress it up. Of course raise the bed a few inches.

What's your thoughts....

Don't try to put too much in a small space. Doesn't look like there's enough room for crepe.

And get the sign cleaned lol

Sounds like you already got it licked. I would say crepe myrtle either side skirted with some squat evergreens 3 per side, fill the area in between low grasses or day Lillie's , then front that with annuals all same color (then you could up sell annuals 3x a year every year)

I will make the area a little bigger and raise the bed 6-8 for proper drainage.

I think I'm going to use the same design but just bring it out about 2-3ft

A couple of spiral junipers about 6ft tall would look cool on the ends.
