I have just completed my sideyard. Brick walkway from front to back. 4 foot beds on each side. One bed is 3/4 of the way under eave of house. I planted ferns, hostas, dwarf gardenia...but, in planning this didn't consider the rain would come straight off the roof into this bed. I have moved everything back so it won't be beaten to death. I am trying to come up with something other than having to have a gutter installed. Do you think any of these would work: dig out a few inches deep and put small rocks or pea gravel? Or maybe something that could take the occasional beating down, like monkey grass? I am at a loss and would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks
