Good morning folks! I bought a new house last summer and am ready to finally tackle some landscaping projects. To one side of my house there is a tiered area incorporating some huge rocks. Right now it's pretty barren. There were some overgrown, ugly Leyland cypresses right at the fence line that I recently had removed. The other side of the fence is the back of my driveway.

I'm interested in hearing opinions about what would look good there. I don't really want anything that would grow as high as the fence. I will likely remove the shrub on the left of the picture. I live in Zone 7 (metro Atlanta area) This part of my backyard gets a lot of sun since removing the Leylands.

Thanks in advance for any input/suggestions!

If you want to keep it low the first thing that comes to my mind is sedum. You can add winecups, pachysandra, or vinca.

Rock garden, or cascading plants, like petunias, lobelia, bacopa, verbena.

It'd be planting rosemary and letting it cascade over the rocks.
