It's finally that time of year when I turn my focus from interior home renovations to exterior. I have to admit, the yard is always something I dread. From mowing the lawn to constant watering, I just don't get any joy out of something that requires so much work, but never really has any pay off...for me anyway. Well, this year, I'm going to make it pay off. I really want my yard to be something special. The only problem is, I haven't the time or money to do anything grandiose, and I have no vision for what the yard needs. So, I'm asking for help from whoever reads this post. Please look at the pictures I have posted of my front and back yards and tell me what you think I could do, being conscious of a tight budget.
