Best idea is to consult with a local nursery to see what does well in your part of the country.

It depends on what part of the country you live in. It appears to be either California, Florida or the Gulf Coast, but that is still rather vague.

Don't know anything about plants in your area. Only suggestion I have is to add more shutters and windowboxes.

Go to a few local nurseries (at least 3 or 4) talk with them to get ideas, then go home and decide what you want to do before purchasing plant material. Don't purchase any plants until you have visited several as the size, cost and types of plants may vary widely.

Some nurseries will even do landscape plans for free!

Thank you for the info I did not know some nurseries will do the landscaping plans for free. Mind you I usually go to Walmart Lowes or HomeDepo.

Stroll around your neighborhood and cruise the better parts of your town and neighboring towns. Take pictures of stuff you like. Chat with your neighbors. Note if plants you like are thriving in conditions like yours (ie if it's covered with blooms and in full sun, don't assume it will flower prolifically in deep shade).

Landscapers I have looked into in PA if you get their plan and buy their plants/bushes/trees guarantee them. So, if anything dies, it is replaced, so do not lose investment. Also, it is more Eco friendly to buy from local nursery then from Big Box store, which often import their plants. Which can also import pests.
