    What would you do with this. Boxwoods were used in between and on either side of the holly's. The boxwoods have been removed.

    Do you have to keep the hollies? They don't look to good there to me. First of all there are only two instead of one or three, secondly they look off scale compared to the windows. I think you should remove them and put something smaller than the height of the windows in. Something tall but not as tall as the hollies in the right corner may work. I guess it depends if there are windows behind the holly for the rest.

    This funny because I was gonna say the same thing but decided against it. My original comment was going to be "why do people spend all that money to build a beautiful home with great brick work only to cover the facade with some crappy looking holly shrub?"

    HOLLY'S are beautiful but they don't look good in this house the way they have them.

    heres just an idea...

    Golden Cypress, Birch Tree, Birds Nest Spruce, Fountain Grass, Hinoki (specimen), Azalea Hedge, Mountain Fire Spirea, Rose bush , and some perennials and annuals....

    That's of course if you're in my zone...
