Please help me with the bane of my landscape
Hello. I've got an area that has been my gardening bane for the last five years. When we moved in the only thing growing in this space was the Autumn Joy Sedum. I added the pachysandra and hostas and various other plants that were moved from other locations or gifted from other gardeners. Nothing really thrives. The pachysandra and hostas are doing okay on one side, but have died off on the more shaded side and it looks like all the plants have creeped over to the east side. I'm a fairly high maintenance gardener in the other parts of my garden, but my current way to deal with this space has been to pretend it isn't there. I'm looking for a few varieties to just fill in and ignore...maybe something that spreads and fills in...shrubs even. Next spring I plan to dig up what is still alive and relocate and just redo the whole thing with 3-5 different plant varieties. Area is on the Northwest corner of the yard. Gets part-sun by the sedum and full shade on the west side under the evergreen. I would be super grateful for any suggestions on how to work with this problem area. Thank you!
