I like the flowers on the inside of the walk. The grass on the other side compliments the busier flowers and offers a relief to the eyes. I would probably add a small circle of flowers around the lamp's base as I think it would tie it all together nicely. All and all, I love the landscaping, not to mention the beautiful house.

Birch are known to have high roots. Is that also true of river birch? Also, can they be planted near home's foundation and near lawn?

That does indeed appear to be a clump Birch which are great when given enough room to grow, although relatively short lived. Their exfoliating bark creates great textures in summer and winter. The challenge as in this case is that the tree is planted far too close to the residence. In a short number of years the adjacent sun loving perennials will be in shade and struggling and the gutters will be full of leaves each and every year.

One of the most common mistakes we see when homeowners develop gardens along the front of a residence is all of the plant material is placed inside the walkway. Most people will not even notice the plantings. When you pull the planting bed to the outside of the walkway as well, then your guests begin to walk "through" the garden instead of along it.

If you were to pull that birch to the outside of the walkway and plant it about 8' outside the walkway into the enlarged planting bed and light it with three LED uplights you begin to create a much more dramatic entry way.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Traditional
A clean and simple hardscape, plus a traditional lawn and a harmonious planting bed, allows the lines of the house itself to stand out. The lamppost fits the style of the house and serves as an accent piece. Providing a patch of light to mark the start of the path at night isn't a bad idea, either.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Stone Shows Massive Potential for Homes
Stone can be thin. Whether it's manufactured stone or naturally quarried stone that has been cut into a thin veneer, stone no longer needs to be heavy, massive and thick. Like today's brick, stone can be applied as a paper-thin, two-dimensional decorative element.
