I am helping a friend design her yard into a secret garden for her.  It is an small urban lot in Northern New England, zone 5, 40" annual rain fall, partial to full shade.
The next door neighbor has 3 dogs that have fenced in kennels along the property line which is slightly up hill of my friend's yard.  Along the property line is a strong smell of dog urine.  
In the center of the yard is what I suspect is a maple tree.    They haven't owned the house long enough to see it leafed out to identify it but it is a large shade tree.

You can see the neighbors dog kennels in the right of this photo. I am looking for a shade tolerant plant that could be planted along the fence to help deal with the dogs urine smell.

if you think brussel sprouts are yummy, you should try any other food. And this tiny ad:
