Need foundation bed ideas - includes azaleas

Hi there,
I know this in not the landscaping forum, but I saw all the wonderful input another poster got about ideas for a foundation bed including azaleas and thought I'd give it a shot also.

Here are some photos of the front of our new house. I have no idea what to do or where to begin. I don't like the garage being covered by such large shrubs and have no ideas for the large area. Any suggestions?

You can see 5 small azaleas in front of the hollies. I like them, but have no other ideas to make it look better. I removed the tall evergreens, so that space is now empty. I think I should also add a bed on the yard-side to add some round corners to take away from the straight edges of the bed (the sidewalk), but I have no idea what to put there. That is a weeping willow between the windows of the garage.

These photos were taken late last summer, right before we moved in.
