Hi everyone, I'm new here and need guidance in the biggest way. My front yard landscaping is from the house previous owners. I don't know what's in the garden or where to start first. I am posting photos of the plants that I'm not sure what they are. Any advice and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

I always suggest new home owners watch (and take notes and photos) for a year (all 4 seasons) before making decisions about plants in their new yards.

I do admit though, if there is a plant in your yard that you absolutely hate (know the identity first), rip it out. When I first moved here, the front yard had a coupe of variegated Aucuba. I HATE Aucuba. The day I got the key, they went into the garbage can. Smiling

But if you don't recognize it, wait. You may have a gem.

That's an excellent idea Daisyl! Thanks so much! I gotta figure out how to add some kind of color though. :)

Number one is boxwood. All of the rest except for the last one look familiar but I can't put my finger on it.

I can't see clear, but would like to give some suggestion
#1 a variety of Euonymus
#2some uncertain grass with other herbs
#3 Houttuynia cordata 'Chameleon' mixe with weeds
#4 and #5 could also Euonymus (there many species as well as cultivars)
#6 mixed weeds perhaps some glechoma hederacea, the variegated one is so blured, could be vinca or even hedera. I cant see clear
