So, like any project I take on, I have started off by doing a little research (seriously, how did people live before the internet?). I have learned that an attractive landscape has four things: 1. shrubs, 2. color (flowers usually), 3. groundcover, and 4. hardscapes (the stuff that's not alive like the lining and lighthing).

That means we already have shrubs (although I'm not crazy about the holly bushes, oh well) and the liner (which I do like). We are in desperate need of some groundcover. I'm thinking this is where we bring in some texture and mabye even some color. Here are a couple options I've found:
