What to do with a narrow strip at front (half gravelled by neighbour)

Hi everyone. I wonder if anyone has any ideas for planting for a small narrow strip at the side of my drive. My neighbour have just gravelled their part to make space for another car and left me with the grass, which I think looks awful now. My idea is just to dig it up and plant small evergreen shrubs and maybe some ground cover or just wood chip. It also slants towards our drive so will this need levelling or does it matter? I've Googled to see if I can find any similar pictures for ideas but haven't come across this situation. My brother suggests artificial grass but not really keen on that. Any ideas what plants and whether it would look better all in a line or just in small groups. Also what ground cover would you go for? I'm experienced when it comes to my back garden and it's covered with evergreens and herbs and grasses and looks great, considering I knew nothing about gardening when I first designed it from nothing.
If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.
No need to level it.
