Suggestions for foundation planting under the following condition
I have a slope on the South/West side of my house that is dangerous to mow. It's about 15 feet long, and I'd like the bed to be about 4 to 5 feet deep. There aren't any windows.
We get really harsh winds from the bay so I guess it should be something that will hold up during the winter. During the summer it would be hot day and afternoon sun.
Evergreen would be awesome. Flowering would be great (but I guess you can't have it all?) Maybe a few 6' shrubs, then some 3' shrubs? Any ideas?
