What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kit Pollard added this to Artsy: Inspired by Great Painters
Claude Monet. Monet's paintings of his famous gardens at Giverny are some of my favorite Impressionist works. This landscape captures some of the feelings of those paintings. The gardens are beautiful, not overly planned, and home to multiple shades of the same color.
Laura Fenton added this to Have a Ball With Hydrangeas
Husband-and-wife team Eric and Silvina Blasen have created a traditional garden for this San Francisco house. Limiting the palette to whites and greens, including a lime-green hydrangea bush, keeps the look fresh, not fussy.

Like the green in the lower lefthand corner. Could it be a filler for the pee wee hydrangea bushes surrounded by boxwood?

Like the idea of moving some of the hydrageas to the front door (or plant a different variety near the front door). Also love the white rose bush near the enterance also.

The most common color for hydrangeas is white, but this flowering shrub can also bloom blue, pink, light purple, light green or dark purple. The color of the bloom is often determined by the pH level of the soil in which the hydrangea is planted — the same specimen could grow pink in alkaline soil and blue in acidic soil. Whatever color you choose, a hydrangea is a wonderful addition to any home with its dramatic blooms. It is also beloved of gardeners as an addition to a cutting garden. With a few mature hydrangeas on your property, you may find you have more blossoms that you could ever need — meaning you'll have plenty to gift to friends.

If you do in fact have outdoor property but don't want to be encumbered by extensive gardening, plant fragrant flowers towards the entrance of your house, where their beauty and scent will be most immediately wonderful for you and any house visitors.
