Hi Everyone,
I am doing a restoration project on the portion of my land which is a steep slope and need help determining what plants to plant and also where to place them. The plant list I have listed below is taken from the recommended plant list from the county website (Seattle, WA) for my specific lot characteristics (see attachment for site details). Below i've listed the # of Shrubs and Perennials i need to choose from as well as the options i can choose. The 2 Trees I have listed are required and I will likely place them on the bottom left and right corners to keep them farther away from the home.

# Category Plant
3 Tree Big Leaf Maple
3 Tree Western red Cedar

16 Shrub
Beaked Hazelnut
Evergreen HuckleBerry
Indian Plum
Nootka Rose
Pacific Rhododendron
Tall Oregon Grape
Vine Maple
Western Serviceberry

4+ Perennial
Pearly Everlasting
Wild Ginger
Sword Fern

Thanks for any help and suggestions!

How steep is steep?
Looking to see what is retained, you are pretty much putting in a woods with bushes and shrubs under the canopy.
Are you doing this your self?

If those trees are bigger than comfortably moved in a wheel-barrow you will be moving a lot of dirt and have to man-handle the trees some how.
What is on the hill now?
