I am looking for some ideas for the front of my own house. I dont install or design landscapes just do the maintenance. I would like to paint the concrete border in the first picture and plant some roses and maybe something else. I have a big dog that likes to get up there and either lay down or look threw the window so I was thinking of some kind of fence or something. The second picture I would like to do something simple and catchy. the dog has a perfect beaten down path going threw that section so I was thinking blue pavers where his path is. Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
