These are before and after pictures of my house.

It was all gray. We painted the trim Navajo White. It made some difference, maybe next year we can afford to lighten the shakes up a bit. My question is now about landscaping. We have lots of deer. What would you do between the two windows on the right to add height and interest?

Do you have a question about this post?

    @Donna: I lay out the borders of beds using a garden hose warmed in the sun and draw my plans on graph paper. So I'm a luddite when it comes to these things, but "Garden Planner" gets a good review from CNET, and you can try it out for free for 15 days.

    Why are you taking out the stones? You could make a lovely garden around them! Where is the plastic. I must be missing it.

    How about Hydrangeas? they get quite large, bloom profusly and make great cut flowers too..they come in all sorts of great colors and varieties.
