Sloping boggy garden

Mcowan,

do you want that grass there?  

I would plant it up....dogwoods will take up and enjoy the moisture.  Ferns, astilbes, cimicifugas, astrantias, hydrangeas, arum lilies, hostas, and a couple of evergreen shrubs like sarcoccocas, camelias......actually loads of stuff would suit there.

early this morning I attacked a large eunymous with my favourite garden toy viz. cordless extendable  hedgetrimmer.  Very tall and needed to climb a wall to access it.  Now looking dense and conical.  My neighbour .....I helped yesterday and was rewarded with a couple of lagers......came round with another batch of lager.  Glad I didnt drink the lager before I used hedgetrimmer . Getting to like my neighbour.  However, he did mention needing help with a few overgrown bushes

Suspect you may have a sedge Katfish...carex pendula,,maybe, which basically is a weed.  They tend to take over 

anything you don't like get rid of and plant what you know you do want.
