21 Easy Ideas to Beautify Your Yard

Regardless of whether it repels mosquitoes, Brian likes this variegated scented geranium (Pelargonium citrosum) -- aka the mosquito plant. Thanks to its frosty-white-tip foliage, it shines like a beacon in the border. "The ordinary green form would disappear," Brian says. "Use variegated plants to mix things up." Plus, the plant's lemony scent offers passersby a sensory moment.
