Easiest Plants for Maximum Curb Appeal


If you're not a master gardener, but you still want plants or flowers in your front yard, you've come to the right place. Curb appeal is important, not just for resale value but also for your enjoyment of your home. And if you need something that's easy to care for, you can be overwhelmed with choices at your local nursery. Here are some low-maintenance plants that will look great in your yard. 

One of the most popular green plants used in landscaping is the hearty hosta. They're lush-looking and come in a variety of green-on-green patterns that can spice up your front yard. They tend to prefer shade, but different types of hostas will have different sunlight requirements. 

If you want a pop of color but very low-maintenance plants, consider hibiscus. These plants are sometimes referred to as rose of Sharon or rose mallow. They come in perennial varieties and in a number of colors. In spite of the connection most of us have made tying them to tropical climates, they do very well in many situations. 

Day Lily
Another colorful and prolific plant that can give your yard a royal look is the day lily. Beautiful orange flowers will open throughout the summer and will look great through the height of the home-buying season. 

Mountain Laurel
If you have a shady space, you need a shade-tolerant plant that will thrive. These native North American plants are actually shrubs and are a hearty addition to your landscaping. They produce a gorgeous delicate white flower in the spring. 

Soft Touch Holly
Another shrub worth considering is the soft touch holly. We tend to associate holly with the winter holiday season, but this evergreen can be fantastic in your yard all year long. In particular, this soft touch variety has rounded leaves that won't prick the passerby. 

Of course, it's important to consider your own region and climate when choosing plants for your front landscaping. Choosing local flora will increase your curb appeal and improve the natural habitat in your local area.
