Christopher,

That is a pretty wide open question. The plants you choose depend on your personal aesthetic preferences. Look around area neighborhoods for ideas that appeal to you. Visit the Dallas Botanical Garden. When you decide what you like then just keep in mind that sunlight is needed so don't plant a taller tree type plant above a shrub or bamboo. Make sure all plants get good sun exposure. If you choose bamboo, select a clumping type, not a running type as these can be invasive.
