Ideas for frontyard rehab
We moved to this house last summer and I've been scouring through several Japanese garden books for ideas on redoing the frontyard into a more Japanese looking garden. For now, I'd like to retain the walkway as it is. Thinking about revamping the right side of the yard into a part rock and part gravel plus plant type of layout. I'd like to move the three rocks on the left side over to the right side as a 3-group arrangement. The 'tree' looking plant is a Forsythia. There's also 2 medium sized rocks below the forsythia which is currently hidden among weeds. Seems to me I'd need some kind of fencing behind the right side, but would I need to extend the fencing over on the left side, too? In which case, would I need a gate of some kind? I'm starting to feel a little overwhelmed by the ideas and possibilities and feel a little paralyzed by it. I need help to clarify some of these ideas and I'm reaching out to the good folks on this forum. I'm about to start 'sketching' some ideas on my photo with Photoshop. In the meantime, I would really, really appreciate any ideas you can throw my way! ;) Domo arigato! Below is a picture of my front yard.
