I've also been working on this area in the front yard. When we moved into the new digs, we had this green monstrosity next to the drive way. It was made up of three (3) Junipers. I hate Junipers. I hate the smell, they stick you every time you touch them, just everything about them. So being the good guy I am, I ripped it out.
This is the result.
The little plants are Dipladenia Mandevilla. I could have gotten big ones at $30 a pop or these little ones at $8. They will get bigger. The ground cover is Redwood bark chips and with a drip system for watering.
Since the tile is gray, we decided to paint the walls gray to match with a lighter gray for the ceiling and in between gray for the cabinets. You can see some of the progress below.

OK, I do have some time next week so I think I should be able to get out at least one day. Yuki and I are schedule to go on Friday, but he's having oral surgery on Wednesday so Friday is iffy.
