Landscape design in front of house I am designing my landscape in front of my house, a major focal area. It is a sloped hill shaded in late afternoon by the house and early morning by nearby oak trees. The area I am planting is about 20 x 45 ft. I have a weeping japanese maple I'd like to plant sort of in the middle and some grasses I'd like to plant behind (5-6 ft away) as a sort of back drop and to also serve as a barrier between the "yard" and the cement steps that run up the side of the hill directly in front of the house. I've included photos that show the space, and sun/shade at 2 pm April 25th. Thank you in advance for your help!!
