I live in a terraced house with a smallish garden. There is a patch along one border where I cannot get anything to grow. There used to be a large conifer there in my garden (cut down 3 years ago) and my neighbour has a large conifer adjacent to this area. It is always dry. Other than hard landscaping/pots are there any plants that may grow there.
if you had conifers there the soil will acid and nothing will grow untill you replace the soil,I had that problem.
The conifers have taken all the moisture and structure out of the soil, replace the soil, conifers take a lot of moisture up, as rose has commented nothing will grow until you change your soil
You would also need to persuade your neighbour to get rid of their conifer. It will be sucking all the moisture out of the surrounding soil. If this isn't possible then think about using containers but these will need watering. Automatic watering systems can be very useful here.
