I have a family of poorer Sims that live in a neglected house with weeds, etc. I'd like some clutter in the front yard such as abandoned toys, rusty junk, etc. Google only came up with Sims 3 stuff.
Cheers.

Cheers.There's a Fallout collection at Garden of Shadows that includes a rusty trike. BUT - I can't seem to get to the site atm.

Fantastic. I found it, thank you. That's a great start. I nabbed the teddy, table and skates as well.
Wondering if there are any broken fences around too.

Lots - try Cyclone Sue over at (hiss) TSR.

I'm sorry I can't post links - I think my internet is about to die.

I don't remember where I got it, but do a search for the "white trash fence."

Thanks, I got a couple of items from her Urban Renewal set. (Man, that site is annoying.)

That seems to be part of a Rags to Riches set by Helena but I haven't been able to find a working link.

One search term that I found helped was "sims 2 grunge".

Here are some sites and pages. Mostly recolors, but they might work:

Kativip has some items you can use as well. I get nervous using the site, but admittedly haven't seen much beyond sneaky ads.

Guatla's stuff is adorable (above). I love the little cooktop myself.
I certainly have my share of trailer homes as well. I love these boxes and paint cans for the sims sitting around the table by the grill. http://modthesims.info/d/374283
I also use these rusty playground things a lot if I have kids. http://modthesims.info/d/318153
And, of course, the restorable car on the lawn.
It's not clutter exactly, but all of my sims get a few trees they can eat directly from in the yard. I mean ALL of them. This is a must for me. https://sunmoon-starfactory.tumblr.com/
Another new find for me that will be a new favorite, a dumpster, for that grungy convenience store they walk to http://modthesims.info/d/408938
And one more for the yard, a clothesline. http://modthesims.info/d/148596

Thanks all. Will check them out when I've finished work.
Edit: Finally got on the computer to check out the links. Some great stuff there, thanks.

Just to add, as I was looking for something else, I happened upon a broken fence

Broken train set here http://decatsims2.blogspot.co.nz/2014/07/miscellaneous-ts3-tsm-conversions.html
Toys in a cardboard box http://modthesims.info/d/320291
You could always buy a nice new doll house and have them break it, and move the pieces of it outside!
Another good set for rubbish http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=454087

I had an entire hood done with everything rundown and grungy.
Here are some dead plants and suitable terrain paints.

Garden of Shadows has a lot of grunge recolors and new objects. You just have to patiently search for them.

I did a generic Google Search and found this at TSR. (Yeah I know, paysite, but you don't actually have to pay, just be patient while stuff downloads.)
