Lovely home, rebecca. I would remove all the containers from the garage area and get two beautiful taller black urns and add a cone shaped boxwood in them at the entrance of the house. A walkway for visitors from the curb is also needed and I've sketched a flower bed around the tree that you have. In it I'd plant ornamental grasses, azaleas or other deciduous and evergreen blooming shrubs, perennials and annuals. Here's a sketch of my ideas .

Oh, on the side of the garage I would plant a climbing vine such as clematis, or a rose that doesn't grow too tall or even a pyracantha which has lovely orange berries in the Fall/Winter.
