Need advice for the front yard landscape
I very much enjoy this forum and kindly would like to ask you for advice.
I decided to re-landscape my front yard, especially around the driveway. A year ago I planted 5 hollies (holly compacta) and now I would like to add some color/foliage along the driveway.
I have 18ft along the sides of the driveway. I thought about nandina (2 on each side), but I'm afraid they will get out of control and block the front yard.
The other option I considered were rose shrubs (groundcover roses).
Ideally I'd like something that would be:
- max 5ft tall
- max 3ft wide
- drought and clay soil tolerant
Any advice? Or am I asking too much?
