Hello, I have been trying to google pics of landscaping. What is the preferred plants for a one story brick home.

We will be using rock because of past termite problems. Pictures will be so helpful!

Thank you,
Teresa

are you doing the front or back, or whole yard? Is it large or small? Post some pictures of your house, and what you like, and don't like about the current landscaping, and what, if anything you'd like to save. What type of maintenance do you envision? What is the garden used for? Are you wanting trees?
I was just going through some old garden design magazines that had lots of ideas for many types of gardens. I'm working on a 70' x7' border where I took out some lawn. I want to do roses, iris, some fastigiate conifers,and perennials..maybe a few small flowering trees...
When counting, try not to mix chickens with blessings.

Hi, Sherry
