4 Easy Tricks To Add Color To A Bland Front Yard Of A Rental Home

While you may be happy with the way your home looks on the inside, your front yard may leave a lot to be desired. While you may not be able to make any major changes to the landscaping when living in a rental, there are still ways to add color and make the front of the rental home feel unique.

In order for the front of your rental home to look attractive, without breaking any rules in your lease, consider the following ideas.
