As I type, a new lawn is being planted by a neighbors cousin. We lost a great deal of it when a new well was dug last August and an attached garage was constructed this past winter. ( I won't miss the mud! :no: ) I have a small area on the north side of this big ol' farmhouse that cannot get much sunlight. It is between solid concrete steps and a granite foundation. It's about 6-8 feet wide and long. At one time we tried patio squares ut they got moldy and icky. Now they're gone and grass will be planted there for now. I'm in Zone 4, by the way. Down the line, I'd like to replace the grass there with perhaps a ground cover that didn't need mowing OR we could leave the grass but plant an ornamental bush of some sort. Does anyone have any ideas about what I could plant there that would grow with little sunlight.
