Two parts: Eastern exposure, and need to kill ground cover
The eastern facing side of our house needs work. It's been a hodge podge of plants that really have never taken off. I had to dig decorative gravel out from previous owner years ago, but still can't get it to do much. The one that that did take off was some Ajugga, which jumped over the plastic landscaping border and is taking over a large area of the yard (but very little stayed within the bounds of the landscape trim!). I'd like to till up that entire area and start over, but will first need to kill off all the ground cover/weeds that are in the area. I'd like to also plant a few vegetables in and among some flowers, but it is an eastern facing area. What plants would do well with that type of morning sun exposure but shaded most of the rest of the day?
