Landscaping Around a Sidewalk
Because I seem to be running out of room I'm considering planting along the front sidewalk that leads to the front door. I'm sure others who are more creative would know where to extend the existing beds, but I'm not entirely sure what would look good.
So, if I decide to plant shrubs, perennials, etc., how would you suggest I do it? One thing I'd like is something like a bird's nest spruce. Other than that, do I plant perennials close together, far apart with annuals between, or is planting on the edges of a sidewalk the "old lady" thing to do? If not, suggestions and even pictures are more than welcome =:)
