New to Louisville, KY
Hi all - I usually post on the buying/selling forums but now that we're settled into our Louisville home, I'm hoping to get some ideas for plantings. We moved from Tucson, AZ so a whole different type of landscape out here. But we lived in Ohio before so not totally unfamiliar.
I didn't do much during the summer/fall (we got here in July) as we were waiting for the Tucson house to sell. Now that everything's closed, I'm starting to plan our front flower bed. The previous owners didn't do much - it's mostly liriope along the sidewalks (boring IMHO), ivy and hosta. I tend to like more colors along the lines of an English cottage garden or Monet's gardens in Giverny. But I'm not sure what all to plant and when.
The one thing in the front bed that is staying is a beautiful Japanese maple. We have 2 huge black walnuts in the front so there's a fair amount of shade/dappled sunlight to the front beds.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
