Question Need landscape ideas for the front entrance to my home.

Hi everyone, need some landscaping ideas for this little project. This area was created before we bought this home 2 years ago. Since then I haven't done anything other than to pull out weeds.. This area is exposed to 8+ hours of sun. I plan to recycle the palm tree (seen in the picture) and place at another location in the backyard.

Can you guys give me tips and ideas as to what I should plant for this type of project?

I was thinking of placing this plant along with some landscaping rocks.

Pictures of the area:

Come to think of it, maybe I should expand the project all the way to the front door? Looks to plain IMO....

How about double knock out roses and ice plant ground cover? The roses bloom practically year round and do not get black spot disease. They can get big, but handle pruning well. Bougainvilla instead of roses maybe? Same thing on size control.
