looking for a Gardening mentor
hi, I am in the process of completely redoing our yard here in Woodbridge New Jersey. the backyard measures 70 feet x 40 feet. I've installed a 12' x 17' pond with Two level waterfall, in the process of creating 5 stone block raised garden beds of various sizes and this summer I will be creating gravel paths throughout the yard and around the pond.
My dilemma is that I have no idea what plants I should be putting in the raised beds or around the pond or anywhere else in the yard for that matter. No idea where to buy plants, do I go with local nurseries or the home centers? the 4 bushes purchased at Lowes last year all died. I can supply photos of the yard with dimensions if that would help, her really need help laying out what to plant, where and when.
Thanks for any suggestions,
