need ideas for this spot-pic
the previous owner of our home cut down all of the trees on the property but this dogwood & one scrub brush. So this is our only truly shaded area. Last year we tried to get grass to grow but it didn't happen & now I'm thinking I'd prefer to plant sade loving plants in this area rather than grass. I feed birds & have several feeders, baths & houses in this corner & would like to make it lush & pretty as we often sit on our deck & watch the birds in this area. I would like suggestions on shade loving plants that might be attractive to birds & butterflies as well.
Here's a pic of the area last spring-excuse the plywood-new fence is in. The area under the hammock is wood chips, just under the dogwood is the area I'm concerned with.
