I am very new to this forum and to gardening as well. We recently purchased our first home and I can't wait to do something with the front.
A few weeks ago, my husband and my father in law were sitting in front of the house and decided to get rid of all the trees and shrubs that were in front of the house. This now leaves me with the task of finding something to put in front of the house.
I wanted a garden, but I'm afraid it won't be high enough to block the foundation. So I'm thinking maybe some hedges and then perennials? I'm not sure if I will have enough space for both. The space is 12x6x5. I also need help with choosing a color scheme. I mean what goes with what? This is a lot harder than I thought and I would appreciate ANY help I can get.
Here is a picture of what the house looks like now... The driveway is to the left! Oh my house looks so naked now, please help!
