My old shrubs need to go
We recently bought a home built in 1963 and I think the shrubs around our entrance are just about as old as the home. Although they were healthy last year I am yearning for a fresh look. I would love a suggestion for replacing them. The plot faces north, gets minimal morning light due to very tall nearby pine trees and our livingroom window is about 6 feet off the ground in that area (split level home). I don't want to obscure my view but I'm not opposed to losing a foot or so of my view if I have something nice to look at and something the birds can enjoy. Lastly, I am inexperienced but unafraid! Thanks for reading.
