need a spruce up!
I currently live in New Orleans, but am trying to sell a house in St. Louis (zone 5b). It has a small, steep, terraced front yard (3822wyoming.com for pictures) that gets a lot of shade from a large tree between the sidewalk and street (not pictured).
I'd like to pretty it up for spring. Considerations: I am obviously too far for upkeep/watering, but have someone mow the lawn every 2 weeks or so, who could probably do minor upkeep, too. I do not want to spend much money - just want to give it more curb appeal. Any suggestions, including when and what to plant, would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
