Front yard landscape question

sahara145July 14, 2014


My neighbour and I put up a fence this spring. My neighbour wanted the fence to come up to the front of their house and therefore along part of my front yard there is a fence. The corner of their fence continuing and the end of my fence does not get much sun light and it is a pain for mowing. I live in MB, Canada in zone 3. I was wondering if anyone had any helpful ideas as to what to do with this area. My wife and I do not like flowers and would like to put in only perennials. Any shrubs or plants would go into a bed with landscape fabric and stone.

Thank you for any help!

I have no idea what would grow in your area. Ask at local nurseries?

Please post another picture that shows the whole house and about 10' extra at each side.
