After: Updated Landscape

The real estate expert called this front yard the blemish of the block because of its uninviting and neglected appearance. Now, it is a lot more appealing with its curved line of greenery. The crusty, old awning and storm door are removed and the home's original wooden door is painting a welcoming red. Concrete stain makes the steps and walkway look brand new. The straight-lined flower bed is reconfigured with a curved line that will draw buyers to the front door. The shrubs are whittled down for a more manicured look that shows off the home's beautiful, architectural stonework.
