Good advice fro Dove. The crack is not that noticeable but does need sorting out and would be camouflaged, along with any repair work, by just having plants in the soil. No need for tubs or planters and less watering for you in summer.
For winter interest, I find carex buchananii and its newer forms like Bronze Beauty look good. Mine never seem to flwoer so no probelms with self seeding and tehy just need a comb through with a rake or gloved hands in spring to remove the dead foliage. Look amazing with cream or white daffs interplanted come spring..
