Build a small hedge around your tree if you have a lot of them. A long hedge cover may not be required if you have a few of them. Just circle the tree root with the simple hedge, and you are done.

You can also use other plants like a hedge around the tree to hide it. Both work pretty well. But the first one may take some extra effort to build and maintain. It is up to you.

3. Fill The Area With Red Mulch

Fill The Area With Red Mulch

Use red mulch if you see a lot of weeds, dirt, and mud build up in the yard. And for that, the tree roots are getting too messy. Lay some red or black mulch in the area and cover it up compote.

Also, plant a few green plants with it so that it does not look too reddish. It will not cost you heavy money, but you need to buy a good amount of red mulch bag to set this design up. So use it if your yard always remains wet.

4. Add Small White Stones Around the Tree Roots

Just clean the tree area and add stones with cement or sand. Make sure they are fixed in one place, or else the view will scatter. This idea is one of the simplest tree landscape ideas on my list.

It looks good and repels in the sun. But you can also use black, grey, or any other colored stones to have the effect. Explore it and thank me later.

Just throw some seeds in there of your choice and let them grow. Do not cut or maintain them. Let them grow as they want. 

Some will be big in size, and some will be short. Just leave them. After a few weeks, you will see the tree root is hidden completely, and the area looks pretty well.
