My neighbors don't like my front garden :(

Carlsbad (9)

They told me there's no rhyme or reason to the plantings. They say it's just a mish mosh of stuff. Any suggestions?

"I would not listen to the neighbors. Do they even try to make their yards look nice? You are doing a great job!"

"Thank you all so much for your kind comments....I took all of your advice and now I don't care what they think...I like it now and it even looks BETTER THIS year! I'll go take some more pictures. (mind you, I do NOT have a green thumb!)"

"Ignore your neighbors, love it! We are redoing our front yard and hoping it comes out like yours. Glad you posted :)"

"I hope you listened to the others on this forum. Your yard is charming and keeps the eyes moving around it, waiting to see what is next. There are many places of interest. I love how it is cottage-like and shabby-chic. I wish my yard looked more like yours instead of the little postage stamp that it is."

"I agree with the others- BEAUTIFUL!! I love it. Just tell them you "set the trends, you don't follow them" if they don't have it in them to see how lovely it is. "
