How to update curb appeal?
My husband and I are updating my childhood home, built in 1970 and in need of several updates. What type of landscape should I go with in zone 7? The major eyesore is under and between the windows, which is the first piece we are taking on out front. I don't want to remove the ramp bc we are getting older, and the plan is to build a small deck over concrete and brick front porch. The boxwoods are huge in some places and I hate to lose them but not sure if we can get them out without too much damage, and even though we have plenty of spaces they would be perfect, realistically how hard is it to move them? Hubby says no way...what do you all think?
What types of bushes (or small tree that's roots won't damage foundation) and landscaping should I plant that will be easy to care for and add some color? Also, what is a cheap way to build up the bed and define it?
