What would you do?
A small part of our back garden is woodland (and I mean small, I think it's a fragment of what was left - we have farmland behind now). It has been overgrown for a bit despite my best efforts and my mum finally (after a bit of pushing/getting permission) got a bloke in to trim the conifers, chop a tree down etc. My mum is very happy although me personally I think it looks a bit bare.
Does anyone have any ideas on what would be suitable to plant in the space behind the shed? I don't want anything that will get too big; also I'm not sure if bulbs would grow given that the soil might be compacted. Ideas much appreciated!
