    This lady wants to put crepe myrtle and photina in this bed. It is 75' long and 8' deep. What else should I do to help this bed. Any Ideas appreciated.

    maybe elaborate a little more. A PIC WOULD RELLY HELP
  3. Does she like Perennials? Do you have a natural focal point? Is she into natural stone in her landscape? What is her home like? What color crape Myrtle does she want to plant? Are the Crape Myrtles small or the larger sized ones? What color does she like and is she interested in fragrance. High maintenance or low maintenance client? What zone are you? Has she given you a budget? Is she paying for design or are you working for free in the design area? Please answer some of these so we can have a better idea of what should be done. Thnks

    I'll test my design skills. The photinia gets pretty large, and the myrtle the bed along a house or fence? If that's not a problem, pittosporum will be a nice buffer or indian hawthorne. Just a couple of ideas. The leaves of either will compliment the smaller leaves of the crepe myrtle and the larger of the photinia. Pretty plain I guess.
