If you have a large shade tree in your yard and grass is having a hard time growing, you should consider planting Hostas. Hostas are a hearty ground cover that can be planted under trees, as they withstand the shade and competition from the tree's roots.
To achieve a nice look, plant your Hostas in a ring around your tree, at least three plants deep. This plant greatly complements stately trees without completely stealing the show.
