Q.What Can I Replace Overgrown Forsythia, Which Was Planted On A Downward Slope On The Perimeter Of Our Yard, With?

Zone Zone 7 | Vlmerritt added on May 11, 2020 | Answered

The forsythia currently hides a fence but beyond that fence isn’t sloped. There is also a vernal pond and other water over therr so we’re not concerned with lack of water for amy replacement or even continued erosion. The forsythia hide the slope as well which is nice, but it just feels so overgrown. We’re afraid something too small will expose too much but also don’t want to feel like our yard could eat a human being as it does right now.
