    If you are not wanting to replant in that area look at putting yard art, an artistic stepping stone, a pot with a plant in it or other decorative works.

    I would ask the local nursery what grass is good in your area for sandy soil. Here in PNW we have a coastal blend that works great in sand.

    How do you feel about groundcovers? Vinca and sedums grow in harsh conditions, but they can spread.

    Try myrtle (also called periwinkle because of its pretty blossoms in the spring), pachysandra, or hostas. All of these grow well in the shade in the areas under a tree canopy. Daylilies also work well and are super easy to grow (a must for me!).
