deer resistant shade plants, groundcovers, shrubs & flowers
i'm very new to gardening (we bought our first house last year) and looking for lots of ideas to fill in our backyard. i don't really know where to begin.
on the flat area of our yard closest to the house grass grows decently (roots seem shallow but we're working on them!). i'm interested in covering the hill/slope in our backyard with a deer resistant ground cover that can tolerate shade and is good for preventing erosion. is there anything like this??
also, we have planting beds along the house that get partial shade. they are about three feet deep by twenty feet long. rather than going to the gardening store & picking what looks pretty together, i'd love to hear what you have had success with. the soil is somewhat rocky. again, deer resistant.
i'm anxious to plant this spring & could really use any advice. thanks!
