I have a heavily shaded area to the left and right of a sidewalk right outside of my condo. Someone else has placed some brick (to help contain soil erosion) and river stones (to minimize soil splatter on their car).
I think that I want to remove the river stones, remove the sand colored bricks and plant some Liriope. If it's not planted dense enough then it just won't spread. I'm thinking that conditioning the soil may help with the plant growth. However, I know there are many roots in this area from the trees and am not sure how to go about doing it. Picture of area below:
Any suggestions about how to make the soil better?
