Attached is a before and after picture of the house I'm buying (Left is how I bought it, right is google maps from about a year or two ago, it was apparently a foreclosure).
As you can see, the yard used to look pretty nice with some big bushes providing shade and privacy for the front porch.
Any idea what kind of bushes those were? I liked the look of them in that picture. Or any other suggestions for privacy on the front porch and shade. The sun sets on the far front corner of the garage for directional reference.
Also, you can see the neighbor's perfectly rounded hedge/bush. I hate those. Probably just the rounded ones, but I really don't like the way it looks.
EDIT: also, oops, this was not supposed to be in the gardening forum but the landscaping.
