    we could use some suggestions for some bushes around our house. we are looking for hardy bushes that don't require a whole lot of maintenance.

    we would appreciate any help you landscapers could offer. i'm not very good with picking out designs.

    why don't you hire a landscape designer that is familiar with your area? We all do this as a business, and therefore you may find not alot of people want to just give out information for free unless there is some monetary gain for them.

    just my 2 cents.

    The whole neighborhood seems void of any kind of shade. I think some trees and bushes around more than just next to the house. Probably some Technys around the air conditioning unit and let them grow up to the window, so plant several feet out into the lawn.

    Put a large maple on the south side where the new deck will be and have some shade. This place must bake in summer and freeze in winter. A row of technys on the west property line makes a nice wind break for winter.

    That is just my impulse. I do not pretend to do good designs. I have ideas that I like, but leaves others scratching their heads. Then of course when I see what others have done I say - "what was the point of that?? More crap to mow around but serves no function." :)
