We just bought our first home last July and are clueless how to landscape around the house. Right now all that’s around the house are ugly bushes that are dead. This spring we are digging up the bushes and we have bought landscaping stone (the multicolored gravel) to go around the house. Does anyone have any good ideas or suggestions on what to plant? I want colorful flowers that will come up every year and some trees that are mauve in color. I haven’t a clue what to get! Help!

buy perennial flowers that come up year after year. pansies are really good for this and will grow back even thicker year after year. while they are blooming deadhead and when you get little seed pods on them pop them and they will grow, they pods are full of seeds, in corners you can plant butterfly bushes, they always look really pretty and lilac bushes grow well up against houses and are very pretty.if you want a good display that will grow up onto the house you could plant wisteria that grows on just about anything and they have purple in that,and it grows in shapes like bunches of grapes, that would look nice. start off with some paper and get on-line to look up plants and draw what you have to see what you think would look nice. you can always add more as you go along, and remember gardens change as they grow, just enjoy making it look beautiful and don’t worry, most plants are strong and before you know it you will have a beautiful landscape. good luck hun.xx
