I'm designing a landscape for the below property and I'm really running into some frustration because of the way the walkway was built. 90 degree corners everywhere creating nothing but squares and rectangles in the negative space. The other side of the walk has about 6 feet before it drops off at a 45 degree angle. I'm looking for suggestions regarding placement and bed shape to soften the sharp angles and optimize planting space. It would be easy for me to just follow what's there and do a linear planting, but I really want to add some depth and interest to this home. Just wondering if anyone with more experience (*cough* Jim Lewis *cough*) has any creative suggestions..... My budget is 10K and everything is coming out but the weeping hemlock.
