Answer: You might be able to create a bit of screening effect using a shade tolerant large shrub such as Hamamelis, Viburnum prunifolium or the semi-evergreen Viburnum rhytidophyllum. These grow quite large, almost the size of a small tree so you could use them a bit further out from the foundation so they have room to grow. Along the foundation you could try an evergreen such as Prunus laurocerasus. For additional interest try hostas in a variety of colors, sizes and textures and possibly some ferns as well. I hope this gives you some ideas.
