Suggestions for a newly cleared area
we have a larger yard, plenty of grass to mow. This shady area, behind my tractor shed has always had my attention, but was always wild. There's a spring-fed creek that runs through it, and last year ran all summer long. This is a corner on our property. I started to clear it 20 years ago, got sidetracked. Now I want to get back to it.
I cleared this small area this morning. You can kind of see the creek in the first two pics. Third pic shows the skunk cabbage.
My question is, should I kill off the skunk cabbage (Roundup??) and replace with what? My DW is saying plant some ferns.
