I have a long bunglow and alongside the front of the house is a garden that is hard on the eyes. It is quite long (25 feet) and narrow (4 feet). Right now there are Hostas taking over with other unknowns thrown in for good measure and not to mention a few rocks. I moved in two years ago and have done nothing with it. It is entirely all shade and directly in front of a large front living room window. What plants and placement would make this pleasing to the eye and add a bit more uniformity to the garden. As well, how on earth do I dig out hostas? I tried to do this last summer and they are very sturdy and I was thinking I might need a backhoe.
