I have tried over and over spent hundreds of dollars planting plants and shrubs and for the life of me can't get anything to take/grow in these huge berms we have. We have tried multiple plants (sun and shade). It gets morning shade and afternoon sun. We have tried everything. They will grow well for about a month or so and then we notice slowly they die off. We are on our fourth round of plants and we are still having the same issue. Not sure if the soil is bad, we are over watering, under watering, need more mulch. We just can't figure it out. My wife and I are SO FRUSTRATED we just want some nice curb appeal and can’t get it no matter how hard we try. It is getting WAY too expensive to keep re-planting, we are about to give up!!!! Please come help before we give up and just plant a whole bunch of different flowers/grass. All that hard work I did with the landscaping blocks I hope is not all for not!!!! ANY SUGGESTIONS!!!
