Ideas

I need some ideas on what to plant, where...design in landscape, perhaps. Is there a specific ng for those types of suggestions? Perry

There are websites all over the net if you use search words at google.com on to find pages on topics or questions you may have. And there are beginner handbooks at your nearest library that will be very helpful, with sundry landscape arrangement plans shown & discussed. You can always ask stuff in this group & if it's TOO elementary someone may make fun of "what's one plus one" sort of stuff, but others will take the time to make suggestions, some of which will probably be useful.
As a beginner-generality: Plant stuff you like which is appropriate to your climate (or USDA gardening zone) & for the lighting conditions around your garden areas. Start with small trees or large shrubs to establish the "bones" & rough outline then fill in with subshrubs & perennials, followed by bulbs.

And in addition to paghat's very good suggestions, there are professionals who do landscape design and consultation as a business. Depending on your circumstances and the time you have to devote to it, it could make sense to hire a professional for some advice. It can save money in the long run by eliminating some trial and error mistakes, specially if you are very inexperienced, but landscape design is not rocket science and if you are willing to do some research and some homework, you can pull it off quite nicely on your own. A visit to a local nursery or arboretum or public garden in your area will give you ideas on what grows well in your location and in what situations.
It is sometimes difficult to assist with a landscape design by remote - much better to be able to see the site in person and evaluate the conditions in real life, so keep that in mind when soliciting suggestions online. And not all planting suggestions will be relevant, so you will need to weed out inappropriate ones if you can (excuse the pun!).
