Blank Slate Backyard

last month

I need help knowing what to do with our backyard. We planted a few trees and tried planting 12 (evergreen, not sure what kind) trees on the sides but on one side they all died within 6 months of planting due to rain runoff. There are homes being built behind us so we’d like privacy in the back. No Hoa but there are deed restrictions that say we cant have privacy fences. Our budget is tight…5k or less but we are willing to do the work ourselves. Originally we were supposed to have .25 acre of woods in the backyard but the builder cut down the trees and didn’t even put sod down. We sodded most of the backyard ourselves but need to get a few more pallets to fill in the area that’s still bare. Grateful for any ideas!
