Help me design a front planter
I am a novice when it comes to gardening. I have planted small planters and some veggies over the years but never really new how design a space. I have the time just not the knowledge. We built a new house last year and have a front planter. The house is grey and faces East. The planter is against the house with nice stone work behind the planter and an aggregate walkway path infornt. The area is 20feet long and 9 feet deep for 8 feet and 6 feet deep for 12 feet. It has a rounded corner. The short side is beside stairs.
What are you favourite plants? What are some tips on designing the space. I want a low maintenance garden because I live on acreage and have lots of work. How do you pick want plants work together? Any rules to follow?The driveway pad and house are on the bigger scale side does this effect the plants I pick?
