    Looks good. :) Did you add the other flagstone or was that hidden in the turf?

    What plants did you use? Looks like some firepower nandinas and maybe some spirea?

    Front of the house is china girl holly with little princess spirea in front of it. They had a problem with dog digging near the steps so those are golden barberry surrounding where the jap maple goes. They had a creek and we pulled the rock from there with a bobcat and dolly. Pic with the bird house and flagstone has Miss Kim lilac against house, golden mops on the right and Wiegela to the left of the rock. The stuff around the boulder was a sentimental plant they didnt want to move. Flowering almond I believe. Still plan on adding some Karl forester grass on both sides of lilac.

    Looks clean, but lacks character. Needs color, alot of dead space with nothing happening. Please take the tags off the plants. :)

    Lol!! The tags are gone, I just got a little picture happy to soon. They were really after low maintenance, so no annuals for color. Lilacs bloom spring, wiegela and spirea summer color, Holly and mopheads will provide winter. Any other suggestions what would you add for color?

    Looks like a real good job you did there. You did make one common mistake, planting to close to the foundation of the garage. Good work though.
