Small yard under a huge tree
Son and DIL just moved into an older home with a very small yard under a huge sweet gum tree. The tree has to stay (until they can afford to cut it down), but in the meantime, does anyone have suggestions for improving the front yard? Mulch? Different plants under the window? The less grass, the better as they have a hard time getting it to look good. Whatever you think. I'm open to all ideas. Thanks very much.
