I'm like my youngest daughter a few years ago learning to ride a bike.  Mad as a hornet, and determined to do it.  I just want some nice things along my South foundation and I keep mulling and researching and fussing and looking and plotting, and I can't seem to pull it off.  I hate planting Wrong Things.  I know, I should turn it over to someone else, but I want to do it myself.

So I guess I'll have to deal with some mistakes.

  1. Oh my, you sound like me. A few years back. I finally gave up on the narrow south facing strip along my front walk (and voles had stripped what was there as well) and asked for help.

    The professional's recommendation: pea gravel and pink flamingos. Joking, but only a little.

    Keep experimenting .... I am on the third complete overhaul of my south foundation space, all new plants this year.
