Many questions…

I need help and soon. We want to landscape our front lawn. Eventually we don't want grass. Just pathways, sitting areas, and many flower beds. But, we need to start slowly. I found these great specials at Brecks on different bulbs. Specifically these 2 sets: http://brecks.com/collection.asp_Q_pn_E_68754 http://brecks.com/collection.asp_Q_pn_E_68849 BUT, I know nothing about bulbs. How long with these flowers/foliage last? After a month do I need to cut any of it back and be left with mothing in the flower bed? What are the good points and bad points of buying bulbs? What else should I consider? Is there something I should plant along with these bulbs to give interest all season? Thank you for any helpful advice.
