What to plant in here?

Okay - first off the monkey grass is staying at the edges. I'm not going to take the time to remove it. I had creeping juniper in this area but it never did well. Maybe the weed fabric was a problem. Anyway - I want to have something easy in here - the area bordered by monkey grass and the house. This will soon be a rental unit. I appreciate all suggestions.

I would just clean out any weeds, put down some landscape fabric (not plastic), add mulch or landscape rock. I like mulch because it is light, inexpensive, and easy to work with but you will have to add some every couple years as it breaks down. Rock is nice but it will eventually get dirt in between it and start to grow weeds. I kind of like the grass border and I think any planting would eventually block the window.
