Landscaping a new patio space
I just finished building a patio and now I have to figure out how to landscape the bare earth around it.
I already have a few seedlings from last year: a maple & oak tree & a redbud seedling. These are too small to really fill the place out. Maybe in 10 years!!
Meanwhile I am trying to figure out what kind of shrubs or groundcovers I can plant, which will do OK now when it is mostly sunny, but won't die off when those trees grow up & the area becomes shady.
if I plant Azaleas or Rhododendron, will it be too sunny for them now? The yard does receive 'partial' shade from other trees that are farther away in the yard. Still they will get a lot of sun in the summer.
