Landscaping your entire front yard with plants and flowers can get very pricey—not to mention, time-consuming—but when strategically placed, even just one planter can boost your home's curb appeal. To maximize the planter's impact, hang it right beside your front door so guests can't miss it when they ring the bell. Rather than pot multiple small plants, transplant them into one large planter to really make a statement. An added bonus: You'll only have one container to water.
Alternatively, invest in two eye-catching pots to flank your front door. Then fill them with blooms that will last for months, such as decorative grasses, to get the most for your money.
