What to plant under holly trees?
A landscaping crew that came out to prune the plants that the landscaping company had planted, cut away to a height of six feet, all the lower branches of two large holly trees that they had not planted and that had provided screening between my property and the neighboring property for over 30 years. They had neither notified me first nor had gotten permission to trim the hollies.
I won't repeat what I said when I saw the result, but now I need to plant something (at the landscaping company's expense) that will serve as a screen, won't grow taller than 6 feet, will be deerproof, evergreen, and have some color in addition to green. The hollies are female.
The now bare area is about 14' x 14'. There are azaleas nearby.
