What to plant - house facing east - Collin County

Asked June 25, 2013, 4:53 PM EDT

I'm building a new house. I need to pick 2 trees along with landscape bushes/plants. Can you give me any ideas for pink blooming trees and low maintenance and disease resistant bushes/plants/flowers for landscaping? The house faces east and has an average size yard. I will have a sprinkler system.
