Making Your Yard More Welcoming

When guests arrive at your house, what does your front yard say to them? Although it might be easy to write off your lawn or forget about those flowerbeds, the fact of the matter is that your home can say a lot about you as a person.

I want every homeowner to take a good, hard look at their landscaping, so that they can keep their yard from holding them back.
