What would you do with this area beside our garage and our neighbours fence? Only gets sun later in afternoon and evening.

Maybe a tree in the corner like a dwarf crabapple or a small evergreen. Curve the landscape bed from the edge of the gate w/ a big curve then to get more narrow towardthe corner of the fence. Depends on if you want low maintenance or don't mind deadheading perennials, but you have a big variety of things you could fill in then

Nothing. Plain well mancured grass is fine.

What zone are you in? Try Googling "Best Plants for Late Afternoon Sun Zone X," and you will get some suggestions.

Ever thought of square stepping stones leading your back yard through to your front yard? It may be a good option to break up all the grass area. That or even a tall tree, with some smaller shrubbery. Try not to clutter the space too much in whatever you choose.

If cedars grow in your zone, perhaps adding a row of them across entire fence. They'll grow up nicely and create a more natural and softer effect.

How about some arborvitae to break up the fence and some spirea for color.
