Landscaping for a an organic, integral approach to an organic Architecture still never seems to be resolved. Granted, home owner associations, planners etc don't really give a damn what is really appropriate.
If the concept of planting what is or was native to your region, much could be done to help with pollinators, reduce water consumption, reduce chemicals, etc..
I enjoy the times my native gardens go dormant nearly as much as when they are in full bloom.

I suggested to my brother as he was building his suburban house that he use native plants for the landscaping, but he said the community disallowed them. Kentucky blue all around.

I have always felt that the over-hybridized rose was less attractive than the wild rose, which is very small, and invariably pink.
