Also, what can I plant next to my house?
Plant tall, upright plants such as English oak, juniper or cyprus to give the home the illusion of height. Small trees or columnar shrubs, such as arborvitae, planted at the corner of the house soften buildings and blend them into the surrounding landscape.
what can you plant on the north side of a house? Several evergreen bushes and shrubs can tolerate a lot of shade, and are ideal cover for the north side of the house. Yews, in particular, can take near-total shade, while cedars need a bit more sunlight. Juniper bushes also work on the north side of a house, as long as they get a couple hours of sunlight a day.
Subsequently, question is, is it OK to plant next to House?
You should always leave a foot of open space around the foundation to prevent moisture build up that can lead to mold and damaging dampness (and to avoid giving insects like carpenter ants and termites direct access to your home). Distance is good for the health of the house—and the plants.
