What to plant or do with this side of the yard?

Douglas Hunt360 Sod (Donna Dixson)Lori J


The unseen side of my yard is about 10'x 30' and we just pulled up all of the weeds.
It gets full sun and has a Little Gem Magnolia in the corner. I need to put some low maintenance items there. We had Monkey Grass there and the weeds got so bad, Roundup killed most of it. Any suggestions? I live in Lawrenceville. Mary

    Raised beds for vegies with gravel walkways?

    Hey Mary, Would it be possible for you to post a picture of the area? Or maybe a bit more description? Things you can do, but need to know a bit more about the surrounding area.

    I assume you would want to be able to walk through there, Mary, so you could do a mixed border of smallish shrubs and perennials with a path between them. Gardenias and some of the smaller roses are a couple of things that could work and would pair well with your Little Gem.
