Q.What Would You Recommend Growing Between Garden Shed And High Conifer Hedge(3ft By 10ft).

I am continually weeding the area that has a couple of cats’ graves occupying it so am looking for something less labour intensive. Would turf survive? It is in shade nearly all the day.

Turf probably would not do well in the shade. You can always cover the area with landscape fabric, then cover with rocks or other inorganic cover. Then you can set a couple of containers filled with plants on top or garden art.

You can also densely plant the area so that the weeds don't have enough space or nutrition to grow, however, they'll probably pop up, regardless. Here's an article about that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/fgen/planting-flowers-to-deter-weeds.htm
I'm going to paste another link for an article about methods of weed control that may be helpful:
