There is no grass left in front yard, however there are 2 bushes and 1 tree. What do you recommend to cover the area where there no grass?

Grass will not grow well in shade, so you may want to consider a shade tolerant perennial ground cover such as hostas or ajuga, or perhaps the traditional evergreen Vinca minor (will not climb your tree or bushes) or English ivy (Hedera helix.) The last one must be prevented from climbing your woody plants.
