Its a bit embarrassing, here is an unsightly and neglected area of my garden. This is under an 60 year old avocado tree. I plan on cleaning up the area and create my newest croton bed. It will be next to impossible to dig due to the mass of roots. Mound planting will have to be the technique to accomplish this endeavor. Lots of compost and mulch will be needed. This is the morning sun that this area gets, remains in shade for the rest of the day. My vision is to mix crotons, understory cycads and palms here. Will update with pictures as the process unfolds.
