Come next spring, I'll have a real garden!

Today I got word my offer for the little house I've been after for months was accepted and we signed the contract. The yard is pretty darn level and has no large trees to dictate what kind of plants I can have. I will have to come up with anti-deer measures for my hostas for the first time. I'll appreciate any suggestions on how to do the garden and protect the plants from the many deer around suburban Baltimore.

There is a stone planter across the entire base of the front porch stairs, but no other plantings in the yard. Would my dwarf crape myrtle look nice at the beginning of the lawn sidewalk?

Yes, I am excited! My half of the house is from between the 2 left picture windows all the way to the right. There is a stone planter in front of the porch stairs.
