My husband and I just built a new house, and soon we
will begin the outdoor landscaping projects! I really
want to do some of this myself, but I know very little
about it. (I'm attempting to educate myself...)I live in
northcentral WI - zone 4, and I'm looking to create a
perennial garden in approx. a 10 X 18 foot area. (southern exposure)

Here are my questions, I'm hoping someone can help with:
1) Do you knowof some other good websites for novices?
maybe some sample plans,common flower suggestions good for
2) What kinds of flowers/plants would you recommend for beginners?

Thanks in advance!I'll appreciate any help I can get!
