Good morning fam,

I'm a pretty new homeowner and am looking for advice in regards to a little landscaping area at the front of my house. I'm not a fan at all of what's currently there and I'm wanting to start fresh. I've circled in blue what the area looks like. I'd love to use knockout roses, but am open to any sort of recommendations on how to structure beautiful shrubs, perennials, and annuals for a great touch to the front yard.

Thanks for any help.

Where are you located? A general area (state and either town you live in or a nearby city usually is best). That will help determine what we can recommend for you.

A nice rose for that spot that I think of right off the bat is Firefighter. A nice deep red and a nice fragrance.

@Odom117 -- as Amanda said, knowing where you are located would be very helpful, as well as which direction the front of the house is facing.
