Looks like a regular run with the herbicide to me.

Whatever you plant will get more than a fair share of weeds and leaf debris as it is a wind low pressure zone.

Run off oil etc contaminants from vehicles as well.

Plant free will be your best and tidiest option.

 

EDIT: You will be kept busy enough just dealing with whatever creeps in from the other side of the fence.

Whenever you plant anything look forward in time and use things you have to look after now as a guide.

Id vote Mondo to. They do take awhile to get established as they are rather slow growing/spreading but are worry free.
