Hedy's Hints: Easy ways to make your front yard beautiful

When thinking about home decorating or renovations, whether for personal enjoyment or when putting a home on the market, it’s easy to overlook the front yard.  A well-manicured and neatly kept front lawn can make a great first impression to visitors and potential buyers alike, but homeowners needn’t spend a fortune or a lot of time planning and working on the front yard to make it stand out.
