Chalk Hill clematis. Nice wire touch on top of posts. ~~ My sister has pink clematis growing on a trellis across the top of her garage and it is breathtaking in spring.

Hostas are a topnotch groundcover for shady areas. Plant them on a tough-to-mow hillside to create a lovely, carefree garden bed. If you have a steep slope that water runs down so quickly the soil cant absorb moisture, try breaking up the hill with rocks or other barriers. It will slow the flow of water.
