Thanks Alex. So what should I put in this area? Right now there's two type of flower & some grassy plants filling it in. All planted by previous occupants. I'm removing all of those, plus a dead bush or hedge of some sort. It just occurred to me but I guess more bush type things? A few things I want to plant somewhere are broccoli, green bean, orange bell pepper, jalapeÃ±o,tomato(in pots)carrots ,garlic, many herbs,yellow squash, cucumber,green onion, maybe zucchini.
