If the tree was in your yard I would suggest mulch, which is the best thing to put under a tree. But since it is next door, that won't help you.

I'm guessing you tried shade grass. If the patch is right next to a fence, did you consider a shade garden? If that isn't feasible you could try mixing in some groundcover in the bald patch. You also could lay decorative rocks in the area and add some containers with shade flowers.
