Here's a little more info. on our bi-level...we're at the bottom of a steep cul-de-sac (which sounds kinda funny, I know)...our driveway goes up at a pretty steep grade. there are seven homes wedged in our cul-de-sac (this is suburban Washington, DC, so this isn't unusual) the other homes are ranchers, bi-levels and splits. we have a good amount of what I would consider overgrown landscaping...but others think I'm a little harsh. For example, we have a huge holly tree the covers a good portion of the front of our home. Can't decide if this is an asset. Would love to see pictures of successful landscaping and porch jobs for BI-levels if anyone has any.
