Help me improve curb appeal
We live in a very shady area and our front yard is mostly ground cover, hostas, ferns, a small Japanese Maple and some hydrangeas near the house. I'm looking for some cost effective ideas to help spruce things up before putting the house on the market next spring. In particular I think we need some large shrubs under the front windows to better disguise the basement windows and help add some proportion. I'd really love to hear what others thinks. Also - I'm very open to suggestions re color of shutters, portico and door. Thank you!
