Desperate for ideas
I have an area in my back yard that is unsightly because I cant seem to get anything to grow there and I'm about to the point of cementing it.
The area is a strip of ammended soil that is sprinklered and has a southern exposure. The afternoon sun is brutal and relentless. The strip is a couple of feet wide and runs the length of a four car garage, with a sidewalk on the other side, so the radiated heat from the garage wall and from the sidewalk is another consideration.
The only thing that did reasonably well were madigascar periwinkles.
I've tride any number of things that my local nurseryman told me would do great, but they just contributed to his bottom line and soon died. I've tried Texas dasies, Lavender, and butterfly irises. The irises are the only thing that kinda made it a year, though they look pretty hagard.
This area is by my pool and while the rest of the back pation is gorgeous this area is the pits.
Did I mention that my pomeranian pees there also.
I will try to get a picture posted soon, but in the mean time is there any plant/flower either perennial or annual that is bulletfroof?
