|I'm in Zone 7. I want to plant some kind of bushes or shrubs (or anything) that'll cover up the gap between the ground and the deck (in the red outlined area). What would you suggest? The plant in the far right of the outlined area is Prunus x cistena. Other than that, we will just dig up the grass and put mulch around whatever we end up planting. Thanks in advance!

|Probably something that will be green all winter. I would plant low growing evergreen shrubs and conifers.

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

|If you want fragrance roses would work also. Lots of shorter varieties out there. Deutzia is another good choice or Clethra (summersweet).|
