Marben Welcome and thank you for sharing this with us and giving us the opportunity to come up with some ideas for you. Please don't feel you have let your daughter down - this is not the best time of year for any 'garden' to be looking at its best.
I love wild spring flowers and would be very happy to be beneath turf that is sprinkled with snowdrops, wild violets, native daffodils and primroses in the spring, and just lawn daisies through the summertime, but I know that is not to everyone's taste.
I'm sure some others will come up with more suggestions
