excel graph

I want to create a scatter diagram graph of results in excel.  But as a background on the graph I want to show regions which the results fall into.  The same background would be shown on the graph if the results are updated. Its like a template graph.  Can this be done in Excel, and if so, how?  If not, do you have a good suggestion on another way to do this.

As an example, have attached a hand-drawn graph of what it would look like for a graph of risk results, in which lines and wording are added to show which risks are 'high', 'medium' or 'low'.  6 points have been plotted.  The number and value of the points may change, but the boundaries should stay the same.
