Need help sprucing up the front and the yard of my 1st home
Hello as i am one of the Houzz website addict, i brought my 1st home last year, now need help making it have a decent curb appeal, Please help!!! since the pics we have removed all the plantings and messy trees that were oddly scattered over the backyard (all 18 of them) except for that weeping mini tree in front of the house. I am very open for all suggestions and very realisitc, I am even willing to do one little suggested project/thing at a time even if it means buying one thing at a time. I considered myself a very smart and savy shopper. I like low to no maintenace shrubery.
I would love some suggestions on my raised outdoor patio that come off my dining room. Based on these pics i also would like some privacy trees in those certain areas. I dont think Leyland would be good for that area since in broswing some pics it appears Leyland looks best as a wall with many of them line up next to each other. And considering we got rid of so many i dont think my husband would like that. I was looking at Thundercloud pulple Leaf or even Crape myrtles. Any suggestions?
As far as front yard i am clueless and open. Even willing to buy a new door and storm door. Tried painting it but clearly the color was not what i had expected.?
