What type of plants do you have in your front yard?

I am trying to find some nice colorful plants to add some curb appeal to my home.  There is just too much green!  I am having a bit of a sprinkler issue so that is part of the reason  : /

What do you think of bougainvillea as bush between neighbors for some added privacy?  I know they will need regular pruning but I have the sort of neighbors that are often on their front patio and then feed feral cats, so they can be quite annoying and with little girls, I just want some privacy.

I think that the bush you have chosen is good but it can be a lot of work. I went to Home Depot and asked for help with picking flowers to add color. They helped we decide based in sun and for how long etc.

I don't have any. No time to care of anything really.

I don't know what we have. They were here when we bought they house. Everything we've planted has died. 

No green thumbs here.

We got some of the high grass in different colors for the front of the house and a lot of hibiscus along the driveway they are simple and easy, we also have a crape mertle in the corner of the driveway too... a nice huge palm in the side of the front yard... Will have to get new pics some roses also a nice variety that looks pretty when all is blooming!

We have a number of shrubs that look like cedar juniper, but I'm not sure.
