Low growing blue plant is likely Lithodora, the taller plant is likely some sort of campanula

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A fireplace is not only a boon to indoor spaces; it can liven up an exterior as well. This chimney gives a basic ranch shape more character and lends a cottage feel.
June Scott Design added this to Upgrade Your Front Yard for Curb Appeal and More
Cost: The primary front landscape expense is typically paving, with costs ranging from $5 per square foot for concrete to $25 per square foot or higher for stone or brick. Gravel or decomposed granite paths are usually less expensive to install than concrete, stone or brick. If you will be replacing paving, this may also be an opportunity to make your landscape more permeable. Sod is typically $3 to $4 per square foot. In addition, you can expect to spend an average of $1,000 to $3,000 on plantings and $2,000 to $5,000 on irrigation.
