Front of house: I'm looking for an inexpensive solution
When we bought the house, there was nothing in front of the right side, other than some sad nandina and pea gravel. I found 5 tiny evergreens (cypress) that were in quart pots at Kmart for $1.75 each! As you can see from the pictures they have done rather well!!! I did not have enough and did not plan wisely as you can see. The results are 2 very sad nandina on the right of the porch. Add to the fact we ripped up the front yard to redo our drain and now I have 2 nandina that don't really work there. One being half dead. I am trying to avoid having to buy two matching cypress because the price would be insane for the size they are now. I am all about cost effective. Any suggestions for rethinking this section and NOT doing plants but something else between the two cypress?? Or some other type of plant? In another pot perhaps?? HELP! And can cypress be cut back?? They are getting pretty tall.
