What should I replace these boxwoods with?
We moved into this house 5 years ago and are just now getting around to the front yard. The boxwoods to the left of the door are doing good, though they need a trim, but the ones to the right have never looked good and now a few bushes died leaving dead spots. I am thinking of removing just this area, because I can't afford to replace all of them and turning this into the focal point for now. Since the house isn't symmetrical, I don't think it will look too weird.
What can we plant here that is evergreen and already has some height but won't break the bank? I was thinking some dwarf yews maybe?
Or, feel free to suggest an complete design!
