Help our lawn

We have septic buried in our front lawn and need help with what to plant. So there is a hump and then it goes down to those two windows. We know we can cut the pipes down but what other suggestions for low maintenance landscaping?

    What about a rock garden with multiple assorted-size potted plants which you can “dig into“ the spaces a bit. I would even include miniature evergreenS for color over the winter.
    The rocks will help you adjust the ground levels. Easy to move if you ever need to, and they’ll complement your wall.
    Go to some local nursery for the most diverse choices in miniature/dwarf plants.
    Rocks will also lessen your mowing needs.
    Invite your friends to donate rocks. Make it a party.

      It sounds like you are talking about the field drain. I would avoid anything with deep roots, like trees and shrubs. With grass all you have to do is mow it.
