Lawn and Garden
$100: "Beautifying your garden and landscaping puts a happy face on the outside of the home,” says Reynolds. For an attractive lawn, apply a product to banish weeds. Also, be sure to trim the hedges and prune the trees. Add a pop of color by planting flowers or grouping pots of blooms on the porch.
$1,000: If your lawn is barren or unkempt, consider more extensive landscaping. You can lay sod, plant hedges and trees for privacy and shade, and arrange pavers to create an attractive path.
