2. Make a poetry box. The idea is simple, really: create a box with a glass or clear plastic front. Put this box on a post. Write your own poem or print out your favorite classic and display it in the box for all your neighbors to see. You can also set up a separate drop box and encourage neighbors to write their own poems and drop them in the box. Post the poems from your neighbors as they come in. Don't have time to build a box?

8. Make it a group effort. Whether you choose to plant a tree with your neighborhood, set up a lawn chair in the front yard, organize a garden tour or even try a poetry box, realize that the landscape doesn’t stop at the fence line.See more: 15 Ways to Make Your Neighborhood Better
