Ideas for evergreen coverage of an eyesore
My patio faces a northern slope into a small creek, and it's terrible to look at. The conditions are lousy: part sun, very dry, steep slope. I planted a few fall clearance red twig dogwoods towards the bottom, but I don't think they'll have much of an impact. Here's a pic:
My latest thought is to take down a few trees to clear some sun and try and terrace a spot or two down behind a larger rock. My thought for planting is leatherleaf viburnum. They aren't the best looking plant around, but they are evergreen, get large and are supposed to be hardy.
If anyone has any suggestions or ideas, they'd be most appreciated. Thanks.
