We pulled out the bank of forsythia on the southwest side of our pool and planted a line of apples and pears to become an espalier. Due to the gravely fill that was used to bring the hillside up to build the pool, each tree almost sits in its own bucket of good soil which they have been dealing with just fine for two years now. I'm interested in suggestions for what to plant in the gravely soil as so far all I have done is allow weeds to grow and a bit of mulching and compost added to the trees. Weeds that I have observed include jewel weed, wild strawberries, brambles, and a bit of vinca minor.
