Hi, my husband is in the process of putting up a double deck front
porch onto our colonial house. The house has a walkout ba***t in the
front, and when we bought it there was no deck so basically there was
a door to the 2nd story(which is the main floor of the house) that
couldnt be used because there were no stairs leading to it.
To give you an idea, here is a picture of the deck in progress
The stairs will start where the tractor is, and go up to the landing
and then turn 90 degrees and go up to the porch. I would like to
figure out a nice design for flowers/shrubs/bushes to go around the
porch and stairs, but I am pretty much stumped, mostly because I am
not creative at all!
What are some good plants that would do well? They need to LOVE the
sun, because this house gets sun all the time. BTW we are in Vermont
so I would like perennials that can stand the winter, but also I like
I would appreciate advice and even links to other sites with good
pictures. Thanks a bunch!
