Plain Jane Rancher Needs Some Lovin’
Two years ago we downsized to this 1964 ranch home. We’ve focused primarily on work inside and are now turning our attention to the front yard. As the photos show the current landscaping is very symmetrical and nondescript. We’d like to keep at least a few of the basic plantings along the house but add variety in height, color and texture. Maybe add an ornamental tree or two further out in the yard... Since we have a lake cottage where we spend our summers we don’t want to put anything in that requires much attention from June-September. We’re in southern Ohio in zone 6.
We would love to have your suggestions for improving the curb appeal of our home. The house isn’t ugly but it could certainly use a little pizzazz! Thanks much.
