Shady Urban Hill

Posted by on Mar 1, 2015 | 0 comments

A shady urban lot on a hill was overgrown with invasive bishop’s weed. The shallow soil over the ledge and the extended shade were challenges. The owner wanted a more manageable site, screening from the neighbor’s yard, and a peaceful setting. Native plants like bearberry, clethra, and itea were added. To decrease cost, ferns and ginger were transplanted from other areas of the yard and existing moss was harvested from areas that were going to be disturbed or mulched, and then transplanted.
