need suggestions

HHassist's picture

Hi...I was wondering if anyone could give me suggestions for plants along our fence and too left of our cement walkway at side of our house. It is about 2 feet wide and has landscape fabric and red gravel there but I would like to soften it with plants. It is probably another 10 feet longer than pic shows and it also doesn't show our side door entrance. We use our side entrance more than our front door entrance so I would like plants that don't attract alot of bees or wasps so that we don't have to worry about our little one getting stung. It looks quite shady in pic but it does get hot sun for part of day.

Note : this pic is from our home inspection while purchasing house so none of the items (like hose, reel, furniture etc,) are kept there.

Any plant suggestions? Maybe ones that are more drought tolerant since I don't want our walkway always wet. Thanks for any help you can provide.
