I don't do much instalation and I'm not very good a picking out the right kind of plants, shrubs, flowers, for the areas I need them to grow. So here is my situation.... I have a creek in my back yard and would like to dress up the other side but still keep it looking natural. Right now it is over-grown with weeds and has some nice oak and elm trees on the other side. I have no bridge to cross the creek and my city won't allow one to be built. What ever goes in there has to pretty low maint. Im in Northeast Ohio, so you know what kind of climate I'm dealing with. The area gets lots of moring and early afternoon sun and is relatively flat. The creek has over-flowed before and moves at a quick pace, so I don't want anything with shallow roots. Also, I need something that will grow at a minumum of 2-3 feet to grow higher than the weeds in the area. Any ideas of an assortment to go in this spot? I'll try to send a pic.
