    Default Landscape buffs out there???

    I'm a terrible decorator and that goes for landscaping too. I want to do some stuff to "pretty up" my yard. Do we have any people out there that are good at visualizing landscaping? Not so much down to the exact flower, but maybe give me some ideas where flower gardens would look good, kinds of flower beds, stuff like that. If I took some pictures of my lawn would anyone be interested in the "job"? (it doesn't pay worth a...well, it doesn't pay at all really, just my friendship)

    Ugh!! I wish I was good at that! I don't mind the work of putting it together, but I'm not the best at thinking up a design. There are some greenhouses/nurseries here that if you take a pic of your space and take it to them, they will give you suggestions on what would work. There are several that do it for free.

    I say you should post pictures and get 20 different answers from all of us.

    I am not great at it, but here are some general thoughts that might help you out. First off, if you don't have a green thumb, don't get high maintenance plants! I've learned my lesson with that! Also, remember to include a good mixture of textures, colors, and shapes.

    And that's all I got. Post some pics and we can all chime in with more specific ideas!

    One more thought...lavender is my favorite fuss free plant. It attracts bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, etc and it requires little upkeep. You can also clip the stalks, dry them, and use them for whatever you want! I made a friend a lavender drawer satchel for her bday a couple weeks ago.
