What plants did they get to grow under the tree? - Trees are natorious for being a dead dirt area, I'm welcome to any ideas.

Some trees indeed are allelopathic, meaning they produce a chemical that inhibits growth of another species (nothing grows under a Black Walnut, for example), but it looks like Liriope is growing under the first tree. Under the other tree, it's hard to see, but it might be Dwarf Red Ginger on the right hand side, and in the circular area around the bottom is more Liriope.

I believe that the dark green "hairy" looking plants under the closer tree are mondograss or "monkey" grass.

They don't look like Ficus to me.

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure these are Wax Myrtle trees (Myrica cerifera). Note the twisted trunks with smooth grey bark. Look carefully at the leaves at the top center. Then check the leaves at this site: Wax Myrtle, imo, is a much better landscape choice for the yard than Ficus. Birds and squirrels are very fond of the attractive berries and the leaves are aromatic.

What is the material you used to create the curved bed edging in back?

J. Peterson Garden Design added this to Texas Gardener's November Checklist
Prune dead limbs from trees and shrubs. Complete this task before the leaves fall off and remove only those limbs that are clearly dead. Don't prune off any living or healthy limbs at this time. Always be sure you know what type of trees and shrubs you have and what their specific care is, but it's a good general guideline to remove dead growth before winter winds pick up.
