    Hi, I read the boards alot and get great information. I do not have a landscaping business but I love landscaping. I help friends and family with thier yards alot. However, I have a delima. My best friend and her husband just built a new shop building for their business and she has asked for my help in planting shrubs in the beds between the sidwalk and building. There will be 2 beds each 20 inches wide by 9 feet long with a doorway in the middle. I have no clue as to what to put in such a narrow space. We live in central Arkansas and they will be mostly in the sun (very little shade if any). She prefers them to be evergreen. Also, they need to be easy to care for. Any suggestions? Thanks for any help.

    Boxwoods or yews. They'll have to be trimmed to keep them small enough for that space.
