What to use for landscaping around bird feeders?
I need suggestions for landscaping under my bird feeders as sunflower seeds and other birdseed seem to kill the grass. I prefer the cottage country look.

As you have observed, sunflower seeds can have an allelopathic effect (stunting or harming the growth) of other plants. Your best solution may be to plant a spreading groundcover under the bird feeder. If dieback occurs, the groundcover can grow back to fill in the damaged areas.
