Landscaping help

I am new to landscaping and I want some help. I recently cleaned out my landscaping at the front of the house. I need to redo everything. And starting from scratch is overwhelming me. I don't know a lot about this besides finding plants for sun part shade that thing. This is part of what I need to do. Any ideas would be great thank you!

The tree is a pain and who ever planted it didn't put it deep enough so there are tree roots everywhere on that side. So I am not sure what will even grow there.

I personally like vinca vine and English ivy. You didn't say what planting zone
you're in. We're in zone 7... the English ivy stays green all year.

The vinca vine is semi evergreen, it spreads rapidly and fills in thickly. We plant our annuals in pots and bury them in the vinca vine. Also, it eliminates the
need to weed in the hot summer and that's a good thing. Another plus to
vinca vine is it shares space well with other plants and flowers. It covers the
roots of trees as well.
