Hide CaptionShow CaptionNew landscaping and color on the front door help make this home's entrance welcoming to potential home buyers.
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.
