I am removing a large tree in the front of my house. I need to fill it with something that won't grow very high but still look nice.

    I put a large bird bath on mine. Just make sure the guy cuts the stump level to set it on.

    The best thing to do... is take a tour around your neighborhood... take pictures of the trees you like the look of.... next.... take a trip to a LOCAL nursery... talk with one of their garden specialists... and have them recommend species and varieties that will give you the look you want, and will do well in your area.... for best results... pay extra and have them plant it... most will give at least a 1 year replacement guarantee because they did the work and did the necessary amendments to the soil when planting

    i really like dwarf plants. Minimum maintenance. Particularly for short people. These photos are super. See what grows best in your area.

    Check with local real garden centers as well

    A small flowering tree would be nice.

    I would have the soil tested after all the needles are cleaned up. Sometimes the soil is awfully acidic and most plants have a hard time growing under the pine trees. Potted may be the way to go until you find out what you can do to the soil, or find out what will work there until the soil can fix itself.
