Why not take a stroll through Russian Hill or down around Pine Grove Park and see what people have growing in their yards? You could also get suggestions at the Botanical gardens.

Or do you want to fill the whole space with layers of plants to provide a pleasant view from the house? Any eyesores you want to screen out with taller plants, or views you want to highlight or frame?
