In these images you can see some blue plants near the doorway and those are the Blue Star Junipers

you already own that are simply transplanted from where they are in a line to a triangle.

I have a dark brown mulch but we can also see it in black mulch or pine straw. This is our start and I can change anything you like about it.

Tree Update:

Lets take a look at a couple of different trees and how they can make the front feel.

    Looks great! How much upkeep would you expect this to require? Also, how tall will the hollies at the corners grow to?

      Hi Stephan, the maintenance is about 5 minutes of weeding once a week every week to keep it weed free. The larger hollies need to be trimmed about twice a year and will grow to the height you trim them at, they want to be 20′ tall so trimming them around 10′ will keep them there. I do have another option in a plant that will grow and stop around that height but it starts out small and takes years to get that tall. The hollies I represented I will be able to get almost that size starting out.

    I have more ideas for the front including a tree or two. I was showing you this because this may be as far as you want to go with the landscape but if you are open to more I will work on what I am thinking about.

    Yeah maybe add the tree and let’s see how that looks.

      Hi Stephan,

      I hope your day has gone well. You can find a good bit of information on my sod site’s
      home page at http://www.NashvilleSod.com and I have some additional info to share.

      Fescue Sod – Mow Fescue sod at 4″ tall to help prevent and discourage bermuda grass
      from invading, also for the health of Fescue the plant holds nutrients and water in the leaves.
      Cutting it short will kill it and your investment. Fertilization will make your fescue tall and
      thick. You should hire a spraying company like Turf Masters who will come by every couple
      of months and spray to kill the invading weeds and fertilize at the same time. Overseeding is
      best done in August – September in a short window of a couple of weeks for best results.
      This changes from year to year so check with your spraying company to know when the
      best timing has come. The cost for a property like yours is about $60 for a spraying
      application. The spraying company will have a pre-emergent in the mix of liquid they
      are spraying. This will stop many of the airborn seeds of weed plants from growing. When
      ever you see a beautiful Fescue yard there is a 90% chance they use a spraying company.
      At first you want to water deeply and often so the air works out of the lawn and the new roots
      start growing onto your existing soil. Your lawn has been rolled which helps with that.
      If you place a cup out and water when the cup is filled to 1″ you can move to another area.
      Do this each day for about 3 weeks. Each lawn is different so watering is taylored to the
      lawn. Your property slopes and is considered berm conditions. Berm conditions dry faster
      than ordinary lawns since the water can roll down hill and away. Flat space tend to absorb
      a lot of water and berms dry faster. So start on the upper side of your property and move
      downward for best results at soaking the lawn. You will want to keep an eye on your lawn for
      dehydration, you can notice this when the leaves curl and become thin, typically you can see
      a gray color beginning to spread. This is dehydration and just like saving a persons life water
      the grass immediatly if you see this. It can happen quickly on a berm and so keep an eye
      on the condition of the lawn. If you had an irrigaiton system most people water three or four
      days a week in the growing season April – September. If we have a had several days of rain
      let the yard dry a little before watering or you could get a fungus. If you have questions you
      can text me or the great folks at Dickens Supply 615-371-2493 they are turf experts and
      some of their staff have a masters degree in turf.

      A mild fertilizer that also has beneficial organisms inside which is like yogurt for the yard.
      Product – Holganix ( Soil Nourishing Root Stimulating ) 10-2-1
      Available at Ewing Co. 615-244-8870 they are near The Hundred Oaks Mall.

      A great fertilizer that is slow release is Osmocote – Put it around the base of the plants
      in the garden beds about Mid April. Everytime the plant is watered a little fertilizer seeps
      down into the soil. One time application and forget about it all year.

      Hydrangea – Trim them back to the size they are now in next February. Trim down to
      about 8″ above the soil. Water them each day durring the summer for the longest bloom
      period.

      The other plants require very little maintenance simply trim as needed but don’t take more
      than 20% off of the plant or you will cause a hormone to activate the plant to flush out with
      new leaves from all over. Simply trim where needed.
