Any advice on our very plain front yard?

6 years ago

I would love to do something pretty with our front yard, but we have a pretty limited budget. I think I'd like to stick to mostly shrubs, bushes...etc. as opposed to lots of flowers. Maybe one pop of color somewhere...? Also, I'm not a big fan of lots of dirt or mulch actually showing in a landscape. I prefer the more dense look where things are close together and maybe a bit more natural looking, if that makes sense. I am just really overwhelmed thinking about all the options out there and it kind of makes me just "freeze" and do nothing. Any advice would be appreciated!! By the way, the bushes under our front window (to the right of the door) do not look as good as they do in the picture. This was taken a few years ago. Those bushes are dying now and look very sparse. Thanks!! Laurel
