The original front garden incorporated nothing more than a beautiful old Italian prune tree, low growing junipers, a photinia hedge and a tired bit of lawn in the parkway strip. Although the new growth of red leaves is beautiful on photinia, the hedge required constant pruning to keep within bounds. It also ate up valuable real estate, taking over the entire front bed. The Italian prune was spared and everything else came out, creating a nice large planting area for an explosion and riot of interest through textural and colorful plants.
