If its just simply stones covered in moss, I have a nice patch of moss I can try to transfer over some suitable stones...or maybe my sons footballs could go missing

I have been struggling with an area of my garden for a couple of years. Its sheltered by conifers, gets NO light and NO rain. Its not too bad from the front but it has bare earth under and behind the conifers, which has really been bugging me! My light bulb moment today was to trim the trees BEHIND! Pure genius, even if i do say so myself, and no amount of rain could stop me rushing out to do this job right away! (not so genius). You cant tell from the front but what a difference it has made, light streams in and its all getting a good drenching ready for planting! It looks fine from over next doors fence as well, phew, no complaints there!

Fidget, the rudbekias I already had (before the ones you kindly gave me) seemed to be struggling under / next to clumps of lupins. I have now moved them where they have more space - would they have come through in their own time? Or do they need the light? Finding this dilemma with a few different plants this year as my garden begins to mature. Would appreciate any ideas about this as I do keep moving things, perhays waiting to see may actually be ok????
