thanks chris! Agree, I won't do all pachysandra.

Planting Grass in Shade, Tree Pruning

Just a suggestion. I think that tree could use some careful pruning regardless of what is to be underneath it. Given that it is a Japanese maple, you might want to spread the pruning over a couple of growing seasons though. Be careful.
