Hello. I just recently moved into a new home, and I need some advice on what plants, shrubs or flowers would be good to plant. I really enjoy color, but I do not want somthing high maintnece that is going to require a lot of work. Right now the only thing i recognize planted is a few holly bushes, a rose bush/plant, and some bush looking thing with big huge light purple flowers that only stayed bloomed for a short period of time. There is also some monkey grass. I want to completly redo it, it looks terrible, in my opion. This area is right in front of the house, and so it gets strong direct sunlight pretty much all day. Also, should I use weed paper when i start this landscaping? I have no experience with plants! Any help would be great!
