Planting and lamdscaping around a grave

Zone Hardiness zone 9 | l.kennedy06 added on January 29, 2019 | Answered

Imagining that this 18ft by 12ft area lied in your backyard, what would you plant here? Plus, with a pergola standing over the spot.Im only looking for ideas. I'm more interested in the layout and planning rather then the actual plants that would thrive under the conditions.
