A little dark for my tastes, lefty, but but for the most part it seems like a great place.

I for one love the current color. Would hate to see it replaced with some boring creme and brown.

i guess this is the best place for this question. I bought a home a few years ago and, i'l admit, I was young and dumb and could have cared less about my landscaping. landscaping was ok for a couple years, but never kept it up nicely as needed. the people i bought it from enjoyed that kind of stuff, so the plants needed some TLC. now the GF moved in and is bitching it looks like garbage, which i agree. stupid me. i'm in the process of ripping out the old stuff and want some feedback on low maintenance shrubs and plants. i have almost zero knowledge of anything. my mom does but she's on vacation for the next two weeks and want to get a head start on gaining some knowledge. anyone have suggestions with nice shrubs or plants that need little maintenance. the areas will get moderate to full sunlight. the area already has nice brick pavers, so that isn't needed. just plants. is there a particular time to do these things? should i wait until the weather fully breaks? i'm not really looking at dropping big money or something crazy that people do. Just nice low to moderate cost stuff

Just double checking before I reply, but do you reside in the Detroit area?

It looks like a fairly standard mid-range apartment bedroom to me. I have lived in better and I have lived in worse. Not sure how it qualifies as depressing.

Succulents.

Also, you could go to Lowes Home Depot etc. and see what's good for your area. The problem is your lawn will be like every other but... solid stuff that just won't die on you will be found aplenty. The thing is thinking a few years down the line what you want it to look like.
