I need some help with landscaping the front of our house in MA. There is a yew (9 ft tall) next to one side of the stairs which I'm not too crazy about. I'd rather have some flowering bush or something that looks good in all seasons. I'm thinking I need to find some 9ft narrow shrub or tree to put on both sides of the stairs? I basically would like to create a focal point that hides the fact that the stairs are so tall. I do like to have flowers in the two front yards but I'm just not sure how to balance all this out. The tree is too tall and the flowers are too short.
