    Default Front yard - mulch or lawn?

    We are selling our house soon and l'm after some opinions on front yards. We currently mulch covering the front yard as DP got sick of mowing it, but now that we are going to sell our place l'm thinking a lawn actually looks more inviting.
    We do have plants in front yard too so it's not just mulch and nothing else. After opinions mulch or lawn?

    How big is the area? (Is it a large space all mulch or just a little with some plants?)

    I would consider it a large area of mulch with a few plants.

    See pics below...please ignore bricks. We knocked down and replaced our fence.

    My preference is to lay down some lawn, but DP doesnt want to.

    I would personally do lawn for an area of that size especially because there aren't plants in that actual part of the garden

    I'd do lawn, if it's mulch I'd see it as an 'unusable' area if that makes sense. Lawn is more inviting

    If there are plants in the mulch or an established garden i think it looks more valuable as work has been put into the place...a lawn, if not perfectly green and manicured can get patchy, brown and potentially look uninviting. Depends how nice the lawn will look .
