i want to plant a butterfly garden in front on my house?

the area that i can use is like 30 inches deep and 12 feet wide. this area is directly in front of my house, will i be able to plant this close to the house. also i found this website that has ideas http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/gardens/butterfly/designs.html
would the backside of the garden be the side near the house? also like how many of each of those plants would be a good amount?

i am new to any kind of gardening, so any advice is helpful.

    You will need to find out what type butterflies live in your area and what they like to sip nectar from. Know the amount of sun light , water,
    drainage, and soil the plants require. Usually a good full service plant
    nursery can help with all these questions, Be sure to look into native plants. these are naturals for the butterfly. Before you dig up the area and add the proper soil consider using containers. If you don’t want to take a chance of having a wet foundation or crawl space containers are
    the easiest way to go.
