|Just completed foundation repair on south-facing front of house. The usual plants were removed: wax-leaf ligustrum, boxwood, Indian hawthorne, and pittosporum. They were the original plantings over 20 years old. They did leave a crape mrytle and another tree.
Front door is facing south so gets loads of sun. Here's some pictures.
Any suggestions would be great. thanks

|Sometimes it's fun to start over...as long as it's not your whole yard! I don't know exactly where you live, but this link shows some shrubby plants...might give you ideas. Good idea to add some color! I have the Yellow Bells (or Esperanza) and the Orange Jubilee kind of Esperanza...love them! I've only bought the Orange Jubilee this year, but so far, it's great!

|Rosemary would be something different. Miniature roses. Provence Lavender does really well here in the Dallas area.
