Any ideas for an area we just cleared of Pine Trees? Pics.
We just bought a house that had a huge wall of pine trees in front of the windows blocking out all sun and the (beautiful) view!
We have removed the pine trees - all 29 of them, but won't be removing the stumps as apparently they are helping add support to the slope and we don't want to cause a problem.
So we now have a big area of 'berm' with nothing growing on it.
We'd like to get some ground cover going, but nothing that will grow high and block our newly gained view!
The area is pretty shaded most of the day, but gets some good sunlight in the afternoon. I guess whatever we plant needs to be able to deal with soil that has had a lot of pine trees in it and still has a bunch of stumps.
We would like to extend the deck and stairs to go along the side of the house, but could really use some ideas for something pretty to put on the steep slope part.

Here's why we removed the Pine Trees - the view before and after:
