Ideas for landscaping around trees?

Two tree's in front yard. What are somethings I can do for them, they currently are just mulched around. Customer doesn't want brickwork done. What are some suggestions on what to do?

Mind you there are roots that come out, not bad but they are there to take into consideration.

Have a picture of the area you are talking about. That would help a lot with ideas. If the trees are already mulched around and they don't want any brickwork or edging done around them, then there isn't really a ton of options.

First. Plant flowers.

Or. Do what people have done fo years before they got mulch happy. Get rid of the mulch and they save money. Less beds to maintain. Less weeding.

I planted a bunch of Hostas around the bottoms of two trees (can't remember what kind they were). About an 8 foot diameter circle around an 3 foot round tree. They look nice, come in green and full and maintenance free expect for fall when I cut them down.

People are most definitely mulch happy... looked at a job today with about 150,000 square feet of mulchable area. Mind blown.
