Ok so I need some advice on something. I just got the front of my mobile home ready for landscaping. The area I am working with is 4' Wide by 80' Long. Our mobile sits very high as we are on the river, so to the bottom of the skirting is about 3 foot. I am in Zone 8, and the soil is somewhat sandy but I am working on amending it. The front side of the house faces the west so it does get some sun, about 6-7 hours a day. What I am wanting to know is some advice on stuff to grow there. What I would like would be possibly some shrubs against the house but since it is a 4' wide area we have planned out, possibly some flowers, bushes or anything else to fill in the gaps coming towards the edge. I would like to know about anything, if any exists, stuff that come fall & winter may not die all the way back down and possibly some blooms which I know from Dave & Trish, you're not going to get a whole lot of bloom with out a whole bunch of sun. I just want something possibly that can stay nice looking year around, with combinations of course of maybe blooms and nice foliage. Any advise on this would be great. Or direct me to maybe some of the forums to look at.
