Have a flat front yard, but want something to dress it up? Adding in some front planters with shrubberies to add additional height will do the trick. Choose the block style and color that compliments your home. Depending on how much you enjoy plantings, use annuals or perennials or a combination of both to fill in the planter. Adding an automatic plant watering system, like a drip line, can make life easier and keep the plants looking healthy.
