Tree patio dilemma

Rosanna Stott
last month

We have recently had our garden revamped and kept a tree which is now in a new patio area! I need suggestions on how to make it look more finished and look nice without damaging the top roots and trunk of the tree.
Raised sleeper with shady plants was our initial idea but would this cause the roots to rot with too much moisture? How about raised edging stones /boulders and a thin layer of mulch and plants? Or plants in pots and put under the tree. I have no idea what to do!
