Houzz is the new way to design your home.
nice grouping with boulders.
This is pretty much what I'm thinking for the front of the house but maybe with stone or brick pillars for entry gate.
white hydrangeas with the japanese fountain grass...
Put a bird house in front.
Grasses and roses
plantings along walkway

lattice, trellis, fountain and garden bed
maybe off patio to give a bit of shade for planned pond...
Triple fountains. I would change the urns for my taste. Lovely landscaping and the cute birds - they would bring kids for a closer look.
Black stained divider and small boxwoods. Simple and effective. Small garden lights.
Perfect! Tring to find what would bloom between the roses and the lilies....I'm sure there is something there I can't see....
This idea might work behind the garage with grass or other green groundcover that takes some activitiy.
