Hello, I'm currently taking a class in landscape design and all the principles seem to make a lot of sense but I am struggling with one of them that I recently learned. The class teaches that flowers should not be used in the "public area" of the house (the front yard). If they are to be used it should only be in the front door area. The reason for this is because the front door is the main focal point and flowers in other areas may take away from that focal point. This makes since to me but a part of me thinks that it is a little extreme. No flowers anywhere else in the front yard?!
