front yard landscaping help
When we bought our home over 5 yrs ago the previous owner landscaped the front yard in this way. It's a bit over 13 ft long and about 5 ft wide. The rocky soil in this area makes it really tough to grow anything. The tree soaks up all of the water so nothing will grow around it.
I need help minimizing this area. It's just too big. Should I make a ring around the lamppost and the tree and sod the area in the middle?
