As you are considering the improvements and updates you can do around your home, you often focus on things inside the home that will improve its function and value. These are great ideas, but if you only focus on the interior, you aren't going to be able to sell your home quickly and for a good price. Why? Because people who don't see an attractive exterior will just drive right on by your home. So if you're going to focus on the home's exterior, where should you focus? While landscaping and flower gardens are nice, the first and most important place to focus your efforts is on the lawn.
