Slope on front lawn, was thinking of getting rid of slope on right side and just grass, and flatten left side and have some plantings Also wanted to get rid of large bushes in front of porch and put something shorter, no green thumb. Please help!

Didn't see a landscaping Ideabook on your page. I think you should start one and then take your favorite pics to a local nursery to see if the plants will work in your area. I would leave the sloped areas and use groundcover plantings that are "no mow." Check out "Steppables" for beautiful ideas and some fragrant things to plant that smell good too. Agree with removing all the shrubs. If you see a home in your area with landsacping you like, ring the door bell and ask who the landscaper is. Most will be flattered you asked.
