Need help with plant ideas for this space, please
Finally recovered from carefully removing the grass from this area under a maple tree, phew! The space is east facing so it's shaded in the morning. The maple tree is only 11' from the house and the planting area is 16' from the house. A Dwarf Firebush is by the entry wall as well as two Jatropha's.I took out two plants under the window which weren't doing well. There is a natural worn pathway in between the house and the maple tree that connects the front sidewalk to the side facing garage where we're thinking of making stepping stones so we can try and at least level where we walk somewhat. We are open to suggestions. I can spend hours looking at pics of other peoples gardens but still pick the wrong plants!
