Home Help - The Front Yard

Only 3 more days until we close on our new house!  I am so excited, I can hardly wait.  Since this is our first house, I will need lots of help turning it into a home we will cherish for years to come.  I've already asked for ideas on how to use our living room space and now I'm back for more advice.

Here is the front of our house:

Cute, right?  The problem is, I'm not sure if I'm really digging all the boxy green bushes (or the mulch in the beds - it looks like the mulch gets washed away after every good rain).  My mom recently ran into a good sale on pink Double Knock Out rose bushes. 

She scooped up several small bushes and offered a couple to me for our new house.  Of course I couldn't turn her down - look at how gorgeous these rose bushes are!

My question is - where should I plant them? 
Could I pull out some of the boxy green bushes and plant pink rose bushes? 

What do you think?  This girl could use all the help she can get so all ideas are welcome...


  1. My mom has knockout rose bushes. They're beautiful and they get rather large. So, I wouldn't put them near the walkway. She is planning to relocate hers because they are taking over part of the walkway. She has to keep them trimmed down and would rather let them do their thing! I think under the window could be great!

  2. I really like the idea of the rose bushes it would look really pretty


I'd love to hear from you!
