Garden Design for Sloping wooded area

All your garden designs are on flat areas or uphill. I have a sloping back wooded area and can't figure out how to work with the area. I also have clay soil and deer so planting a garden is a real challenge. Could you do an article on this type of area?

You probably want low-growing plants and shrubs that will secure the soil to prevent erosion. Here are a few suggestions for your area and conditions:

Bush cinquefoil (Potentilla fruticosa)

Butterfly weed (Asclepias tuberosa)

Chinese juniper

Forsythia

Honeysuckle

Physostegia virginiana (Obedient plant)

Oxeye daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare)

Peony

Viburnum

Euonymus alatas (Winged eunonymous)

Sedum spp.

In addition, check with your local county extension service for clumping, ornamental grasses that thrive there.
