Keeping Up With the Joneses: Three Simple Front Yard Fixes
"You can upgrade the look of your house and increase your curb appeal with a few easy (and cheap!) front yard fixes."
Line it up.
Keep your grass, trees, and shrubs tidy. Clean lines make all the difference between a friendly and welcoming home and one that looks drab and uninviting. An edger is a great piece of equipment, as are hedge trimmers and pruners.
Put on a fresh coat.
You don’t have to repaint your entire house just to freshen up its look. A burst of color on your door, window sashes, or planter boxes can really spruce up the exterior of your home.
Plant perennials and lay mulch.
Shasta daisies, dahlias, primrose, and wild ginger are all no-fail choices for the Pacific Northwest. These long-time PCN natives plants and flowers are beautiful and reliable. They look great and don’t require a lot of upkeep. Visit your local nursery for planting tips and tricks.
