How to create bed near foundation under eaves with no gutters
I need help with trying to figure out how and what to make the front of my old home more appealing. This area is right up against the foundation of the house. The pounding of the water running off of the house makes it impossible to even have grass. Also, this area is right under a huge magnolia tree that shades most of the area. Any tips on how to start anything in this area would be wonderful. I have many, around 40. large boulders and different types of rocks that I am taking from a waterfall in the backyard that I would like to incorporate. I kill everything I have ever planted, so need something extremely easy. Do I use all gravel. Do i need to make a trench between gravel and foundation? Completely dumb when it comes to all of this!
