  • Is it deep shade or filtered/light shade?

    The right side of the front of the house is in complete deep shade all day, the left gets sun later in the day.

    Under the trees, it is filtered shade in the afternoon otherwise, deep shade.

  • Do you guys want a "layered" look (various heights)?

    In front of the house yes, around the trees, no.

  • Does it matter if they are only annuals, or do you want something there year round?

    I would love to mix some year round into the front of the house and the ones around the tree don't matter, can be annuals.

  • Are you only interested in flowers? How about pretty foliage?

    We will use some dark mulch.

  • Are you open to ground travelling vines?

    No. :icon_smil

  • And last, what did the neighbors plant?

    Mostly Pansies ....

Give me a bit to think, and I'll PM you with some ideas. I shall consult my handy-dandy shade gardening guide :icon_bigg and find some plants that thrive in shady, acidic conditions. Of course, if you posted a pic of the site in question. . .it would help with the visualization. And appease my boredom. :laughing6

Got me there. :dontknow: Other than slash & burn then salting the Earth (one organic solution :laughing6) I just water heavy then use a trowel to dig up the entire weed including the "nut" and root system. Hopefully, you don't have so much that removing by hand is impossible. Other than fertilizers, I avoid chemicals because I plant to attract critters--butterflies, lightning bugs, birds, etc.
