The Q&A Archives: Shady Landscape

Question: I was wondering if you gave advice on landscaping. I have researched perennials and shrubs to find out which ones will work in my front lawn. My house faces the north. However, I am not sure which ones would look good together. Do you have pictures or ideas?

Answer: Since your house faces north, your plants will be in shade most of the time. There is a new catalog available devoted entirely to shade plants -- Shady Oaks Nursery, PO Box 708, Waseca, MN, 56093-0708, ph# 800/504-8006 (catalog -- $4). Their photos will give you a good idea of how to design your plantings. Enjoy!
