House purchase – Line of mature leylandii are on boundary. Causing darkness, debris on driveway and major drought on one side of house. Like them as they shelter house however dreading high winds or storm. Looking for suggestions on what to plant underneath as the soil is powder dry. Roots are huge and are affecting location of plants. Have planted lavender and salvia hot lips as well as some grasses but looking for more suggestions.
Some plants, such as Robb’s euphorbia and Geranium macrorhizum can cope with the dry shade but it is always a struggle to get plants established.
