Design Dilemma 2

Continuing from the previous topics "Design dilemma" :)

3. The forth photo(1st one in here), I saw some dogs who walk by pee the plants, will those daylilis and silver ground cover survive? OR should I replace with something bigger and tougher one, which one?. :)

4. The fifth(the second one here), there's two hard pruned bushes, what would you do to them? :D Mine is a corner house that you'll notice in that 5 th photo and that's the turning side to a cul de sac.

Thanks guys, hope you all are still enjoying the rest of the warmth of great summer!

Mimi :) :) :) :) :)

Re: Design Dilemma 2

You'll find out soon if the dogs did some damage. Male dogs marking the spot will probably keep coming back.

What kind of shrubs are in the picture?

Are you going to use the daylilies to hide the electrical box?
Happy gardening in Hawaii. Gardens are where people grow.

The dog did damage the purple flowering plant, I don't know the name of that poor plant.

The shrubs are pink flowering, again I don't know the name and don't like them much. The link will show the exact plant (hope it work :)).

About daylilis, they were in the backyard garden and my puppy ruined part of it while I was busy organizing inside the house in the process of moving in and I have to rush save them by moving to the frontyard just to be free from her. :x

I pruned the Rhodos which was quite abandoned. But I still need something there a little front on the side except I can't block the front.
