How to embrace this little hell strip
Of all the things giving me trouble I just can't come to an agreement with this very narrow strip.
Perhaps the selection of plants works or perhaps I should just mass one type of upright plant and then maintain a taller/narrow conifer closest to the porch to fill that empty spot next to the door.
This area is shaded until about 1pm and then sunny until 7pm.
As the days get shorter its shaded until 3pm so the perennials started to "reach".
Its all that siding that is bothering me. If I had more width I could fill it up a bit more with height.
