Your front yard
doesn't have to be perfectly manicured or professionally landscaped
to look good. It is, however, your public face -- of sorts. Plus, your neighbors are forced to look at whatever you put out there!
Be a good neighbor: banish the following items from your front yard.
1. Plastic foliage. I'm talking anything you got from a craft
store. Like this
, for example. Plastic ivy. Faux dried sunflowers. Silk chrysanthemums. Plastic wreaths. Fake autumn leaves strung into streamers. Shudder.
Plastic flowers are tacky in the garden. They're unnecessary. After all, you have Mother Nature
at your disposal! Why choose fake
flowers? Finally, they evoke the cemetery
. Enough said.
