House on top of a hill, need help with landscape design

I am looking for advice on how to landscape the front of this house. The photo is taken from street level. So the house sits significantly above the street, and the front porch is about 8' above the ground.

So I am looking for ideas about how to minimize the effect of the separation between street level and porch level and to generally soften the appearance of the home. For what its worth we have added some shutters since the photo was taken which helped a little to offset the big mass of white.

Any ideas or general theory on how to approach designing a landscape for a house on top of a hill (or better yet photos) would be appreciated. Also any specific plants (central Alabama) would be appreciated as well.
