We recently cut down this pretty big pine tree that was blocking this amazing view. So I started to turn it into an outdoor patio area. Making the tree stump a table (there are patio chairs that goes with it that I haven't set up yet). But I need some ideas (perhaps with pictures) of what I could plant and put in this area to help make it look more complete. I realize this is a detached patio area but any rough ideas will help get me started. I'm not sure what zone I'm in but I live in York, Pennsylvania. Picture is below. i appreciate any help !

PS I am probably going to change the shape of the area so it doesn't look as boxy/square.

Here's pictures from inside the house to get a better idea of the space.

Hello Kyle, I just joined but I would love to assist you! So depending on the look you are going for you have many options. If I were you I would put a decorative pot on the existing trunk and fill the pot with some sort of bromeliad and have a cascading fern billowing out of it. Next to this area if you are hoping to have a sitting area I would include a simple water feature to soften any white noise in the area. The last think and most important thing I would do is add a canopy tree for desired shade. Take a look at our recent projects page for some design ideas. If you would like to talk directly I would love to help you out in anyway. No Charge! https://naplesluxurylandscaper...
