Wallpaper and paint your yard with color. This is the first thing a potential buyer will see getting out of their car. Use different colors and textures to create a yard that will be colorful all season.
My yard has turned out to be a purple, pink, and yellow color scheme of different flowers. Ranging from irises to perennials of all sorts. Annuals are great too, I keep them in pots throughout the yard to add color. That way they can be replaced after their bloom in the season or changed easily from year-to-year.
A plant favorite in my yard is succulents. They are so hardy and grow the fastest. I have a soft spot for chicks and hens because my grandmother had them in her rose garden. Succulents can be divided and replanting, making this hardy plant go far in your yard.
