Hello All. We have one of those front yards that looks horrible after the racoons and crows have devastated it searching for those plump Chafer Beetle larvae. My wife and I are not the best at maintaining a healthy front lawn, that would help in avoiding this infestation, so we are contemplating creating a non-grass area (East facing, approx. 200 square feet) that would be low maintenance with year round colour. Most of the area is exposed to morning sun and there is an area beside a border hedge that sees very little direct sun if at all. Some ideas so far could include some flagstone, pebbles or river rock, low-lying ground cover, low growing shrubs, etc. All of which we would like year-round evergreens with colour. Any ideas on choices for plants or other landscaping? Does anyone out there have a picture of something they have seen or have? We have a blank canvas at the moment and any help from you would be fantastic. Thanks in advance!
