I am trying to figure out a much better design for this are of our front yard. The tree soaks up all of the water so we can't really grow anything close to it. Believe me we tried. Around the lightpole we have some knockout roses mainly. This area takes up alot of space as well.
My question is should I leave it, re-design the pavers, or just leave the area around the lightpole and seed grass behind it towards the tree?
