Hi everyone, this is the front view of my house (corner lot). We have some long-term plans to spruce it up, including replacing the front steps and retaining wall, and probably residing the entire house. Those are not in the budget this year, so I'm looking for some inexpensive (under $100 if possible) ideas to spruce up the front view. Maybe a window box? Arbor over the stairs?
There are some hostas planted next to the steps, and lily of the valley under the tree. There are ferns in spring along the side with the water meter. We do not want to remove the tree, so it is quite dark in front (something to keep in mind with plantings.)
(Also, there are house numbers under the light I blurred out.) Thanks for your advice!
