The best choices for you would depend on which way your house faces and how much space you have for the shrubs to grow and mature, as well as on your personal taste in landscaping. I would suggest you make a rough sketch of the area to be planted and determine which direction your house faces, then work with a professionally trained nurseryman to determine which plants might do well there, then select the ones you like best from among those. You could also use the following plant search guide to help identify some of your options.


Enjoy your new landscaping!
